For all photographers: When shooting in daylight, stand with your back to the sun, if possible.
when you are hunting make sure thieir is nothing that can make you jump because you could scare your prey away ,just don’t look around to long or your prey might see you!
when your shooting shouldn’t you have a certain size sight the bigger or smaller the gun is?
well I shoot rifles
And keep your eye on the target. Else you might end up shooting blindly and perhaps even end up blind. Dugh!
Does he mean with a camera or a rifle?
Drakel, i thought the same at first…
I agree w/ blob and bill…and ada88…no offense, John
Thats true. And sometimes if you want the sunlight to stream in make your subject stand under a tree with not very much foliage
Hey no offense to you John but that is one of the cardnial rules of shooting in day light.
Yes then you can achieve easy front lighting. Also, if shooting in direct sunlight if you have a camera with Aperture priority mode, set your aperture to f/16. It makes the diaphragm of your camera small allowing less light in. this will cause less over exposed images.
I agree with ada88 Who else does?
this is kinda’ obvious even if you have no clue what you’re doing
The best time to take pictures is during the first or last 2 hours of daylight or on an overcast day as stated before. In the morning and at dusk the sunlight is naturally diffused by the atmosphere and generally causes a gentle golden glow. This is beautiful light for portraits of people. If you must shoot pictures in the bright sunlight hours, try to find some shade for your subject to stand in.
If this is just not possible, you should stand with your back to the sun or to the side, otherwise, the sun will over expose you picture and cause your subject to be very dark.
A trick to stop the squinting eyes is to have your subject close their eyes and open them when you count to three. Also on three, you take the picture.
I hope this helps. Keep shooting! Photography is a wonderful hobby.
the best time to take pics is when its overcasted/cloudy, the light is disfused and no harsh shadows… in the bear book elective 11 page 222, gives tips and hints too…
I did too Drakel.
Oops! I didn`t read about the camera part! I thout it was shooting a gun in daylight!
Put on good safety glasses, and yes it would be better because you might miss at night and shoot someone.
Wouldn’t your shadow appear in the picture?
Also, since this is so short, shouldn’t this be incorporated in with other related tips?
i’ll try it
It was OK.
your right!in every photo book i have read it said that.
but then if you are takings photos of people they have to squint
You are right
