We all know about golden hour and how it can offer you warm, soft, and flattering light for your photos, but if you're only working with natural light, restricting yourself to only golden hour can make it quite difficult to get shoots done. This great video will give you some helpful tips for dealing with harsher midday sun.
Coming to you from Michael Sasser, this helpful video will give you some tips for shooting in midday sun. The problem with midday sun is that it tends to be very hard light from directly overhead, creating numerous unflattering shadows and stark contrast. Nonetheless, that doesn't mean you should never shoot in it, as it offers a look all its own, and you can also take steps to work around it and create softer, more flattering light. Often, this means doing something as simple as finding a place that provides a bit of shade. And of course, even though the video shows usage of driveways and the like, as you're looking for places to shoot, be respectful of private property. That's just one way around the issue, though. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
