Can You Shoot Portraits During The Day In Harsh Light?

portraits during the day

How's it going, everybody?

My name is john. I'm a photographer in Orlando, Florida. 

This video is going out to Derek!  Derek and I were shooting out here in downtown Orlando today. What you can't tell right now is that it's really really sunny in downtown Orlando.  

What we did is we tried to find spots where Derek wasn't squinting because of the harsh sunlight.  What we found is that there are PLENTY of spots to find, kind of like this one right here! It’s really bright and sunny 10 feet from me, but where I’m sitting is fine.

You just got to pick and choose your spots.

I hear a lot - you can't take photos or portraits during the day. When there is a really harsh light.  

You can!  But you're just kind of limited to where you can shoot.  You just have to use your feet. Find a good spot, and just shoot shoot shoot away.

All right, Derek, it was great to work with you today. If you guys want to see those photos, click on my Instagram page, click the link to my website. 

My Instagram is in the description and footer of every page.

Alright, have a great day!

I'll talk to everybody again tomorrow!
