Tuesday’s Tip for better photos #2

Tuesday’s Tip #2:

We don’t need no stinkin’ sun! Cloudy days are amazing for photos! For our purposes here, think about the sun as your one and only light source, and think about the clouds as a natural diffuser for this light. If you are photographing a model outside, would you prefer a harsh direct light, or a soft even light on her skin? I guess it depends on what you’re going for (keep in mind that these tips won’t apply to every situation… rules are meant to be broken!), but generally a soft light is the most flattering for skin. As long as there is enough light, a diffused light is great for any subject!
