Letting the Sun Take Over

This image is from last Saturday morning: shooting into the sun in Harbourfront, I did not adjust the exposure, to get an under-exposed, silhouette look.

Dealing With the Sun

Here is a photo from another photo shoot in Ottawa: a couple shoot with my photographer friend Tim and his girlfriend Janice. It was a very bright day, and being a crew of one, dealing with the sun and the shadows was a constant challenge. In this shot, I decided to go with the bright light, and had them rock the sunglasses 🙂

Lens flare is often seen as a defect in an image, but sometimes it works. Pointing almost directly at the sun I am surprised there wasn’t more!
