Midday sun can be very difficult to work with, but that does not mean you can't get great images during the middle of the day. This helpful video will show you how to take better landscape photos when dealing with midday sun.
Coming to you from Nigel Danson, this great video will show you how to take better landscape photos in midday sun. The problem with midday sun is that it tends to produce very hard light, which in turn produces harsh, garish shadows. All that being said, that doesn't mean hard, harsh light can never produce good images; just like any other light, you have to embrace it and work in a manner that takes advantage of its better qualities. When it comes to midday light, you'll often find that passing clouds constantly change the interplay of light and shadow on the landscape, and this can dramatically emphasize different aspects of the frame and offer you many different shots in just the span of a few minutes. Check out the video above to hear Danson's full thoughts.
