Utilizing Open Shade Effective in Your Photography
When I first became interested in improving my photography, one of the best tips someone passed on to me was to begin utilizing open shade.
For this tutorial, I will be using my neighbors garage area…mainly because it is much, much prettier than mine. ;)
- Squinting: This is the #1 reason why I recommend that beginner photographers not shoot in bright sunlight. You most likely are going to end up with squinting subject who has watery eyes and does not enjoy the session much at all.
- Raccoon Eyes & Shadows: In the next photo you can see how Weslea ended up with “raccoon eyes” (very dark, unattractive spots under her eyes) and shadowing. You can even see eyelash shadows on her face!
