This weekend was a busy one. As I mentioned previously, last Friday I went out to the mountains with my brother and his new fiancé to take some engagement photos.
We had beautiful weather – it was warm if
way a bit too windy. It was pretty sunny for the whole day and with the sun at such a high position in the sky, I know many photographers aren’t keen to go out shoot. Sure, some of the photos may not be as flattering as if it had been beautifully diffused light, but I’m a fan of the notion of trying to make the best of the situation and using the light available to you.
After the photo session, we headed back to Calgary. As I was heading out to my friend’s bachelorette party, I noticed the evening sun peaking through the trees. I seriously need to go take photos of people in the evening now as the light has been amazing recently. Any takers?
What do you think about taking photos of people in direct sunlight?
