Now that summer is here you'll probably be shooting in full sunshine and although light is everything for photography, harsh light will quickly blow out your subject. I had a tough time with my friend's Husky, Akiak, today because all the grass in California has turned a golden brown which made for amazing color shots, but much trickier to get enough contrast with the full sun on him. Here are a few tips to use next time your caught with harsh light conditions:
- The Sunny 16 rule (Your aperture should be set at F/16 with your ISO the inverse of your shutter speed.) Infographic here for quick reference.
- Find shade if you can or create shade with a reflector.
- Use a light meter or this app Pocket Light Meter.
- Use your lens hood to block out unnecessary light.
