If my shooting conditions aren’t open shade, overcast, or back light,….I don’t shoot. However, as a photographer I’m always trying to learn new things and grow creatively as well as technically. It’s good to get out of your comfort zone at times and try shooting in all kinds of lighting conditions, like high noon, subject facing the sun, and mixed lighting. Here are some of my favorite lighting conditions to shoot in. OPEN SHADE: Shooting in open shade seems to be the safest lighting situation. OVERCAST: What can I say, I delight in overcast days! BACK LIGHT: Shooting back light is so much fun, yet does not always produce desirable results. AFTER SUNDOWN: Have I mentioned my new favorite time of day to shoot? I always notice light.
