Working out in the desert in the middle of the day is a difficult time to shoot as the bright sunlight causes harsh, unflattering shadows. But there are a few tricks you can try that will help soften the shadows and result in a far more flattering light.
Using an overhead scrim to diffuse the harsh sunlight, Karl creates a series of images that have a lovely soft light, similar to that from a softbox. This simple accessory is a budget-friendly alternative to studio lighting — one that softens the light and helps achieve wonderfully flattering light.
In this photography class we cover the following:
- Photographing people using natural light
- Tips for photographing in midday sun
- How to soften harsh sunlight for photography
- Composition techniques for photographing people
