Portrait Photography tips for Beginners
When shooting in poor mid day lighting have the subject face away from the sun
I see this done wrong more often than not. Most of the time, photographers have the subject face the sun so their face doesn t look dim and shadowy in mid day lighting. This is unfortunate, because the hard light will create unflattering shadows on the face. The best way to shoot mid day portraits is to have the subject face away from the sun so their face is in the shade, and then have the photographer over expose the picture so the face looks properly exposed.
