Watch Live Security Cameras - Following are five basic outside lighting scenarios, if used properly can lead to nice images.
This type of light is found mid-day around high noon. The overhead sun causes deep shadows beneath the eyes (raccoon eyes) or harsh lighting on landscapes. It is best to avoid photographing at this point of the day, unless you employ a fill flashing to fill in the shadows.
The sun is on top of horizon level however not yet straight on top of, thus the light causes illumination on one aspect of the subject. This type of light can cause a dramatic look unless a reflector or fill flash is employed to fill in the shadow aspect.
Just as it sounds, the subject has sunlight in their face. This can cause a warm, golden look however most individuals squint with sun in their eyes. Best to avoid it. If you must, count to 3 and have subject explore the camera on the count of three.
Place the subject with the sun to their back in the early morning or late afternoon hours. You may immediately notice a beautiful lighting on the subjects hair. As a result of the subject's face is in the shadow you will want to balance the photo with fill flash. (you may want a lens hood thanks to lens flare)
You can always play it safe in the shade. When the light on the subject matches the light in the background you are assured a well exposed and lit photograph.

The best time of the day for individuals or landscape photography is often in the morning before 10AM and in the afternoon after four-5PM (depends on the term). I have found 15 minutes before sunset to be the sweetest light.
By choosing the proper lighting and time of day you can remodel a easy subject into a fascinating display of nature or a attractive portrait of your family!Watch Live Security Cameras.
