Canon Cameras At Bj’s - Following are 5 basic outside lighting situations, if used properly will lead to great photographs.
This type of sunshine is found mid-day around high noon. The overhead sun causes deep shadows under the eyes (raccoon eyes) or harsh lighting on landscapes. It is best to avoid photographing at this time of the day, unless you use a fill flashing to fill in the shadows.
The sun is on top of horizon level but not nonetheless straight on top of, so the sunshine causes illumination on one aspect of the subject. This type of sunshine will cause a dramatic look unless a reflector or fill flash is used to fill in the shadow aspect.
Just because it sounds, the subject has sunlight in their face. This will cause a warm, golden look however most people squint with sun in their eyes. Best to avoid it. If you need to, count to three and have subject scrutinize the camera on the count of 3.
Place the subject with the sun to their back in the early morning or late afternoon hours. You may immediately notice a stunning lighting on the themes hair. Because the subject's face is in the shadow you'll want to balance the photo with fill flash. (you may want a lens hood because of lens flare)
You can perpetually play it safe in the shade. When the sunshine on the subject matches the sunshine in the background you're assured a well exposed and lit photograph.

The best time of the day for people or landscape photography is always in the morning before 10AM and in the afternoon when four-5PM (depends on the term). I have found fifteen minutes before sunset to be the sweetest light.
By selecting the right lighting and time of day you can rework a simple subject into a desirable display of nature or a attractive portrait of your family!Canon Cameras At Bj’s.
