PHOTOGRAPHY TIPS FOR YOU:
You don’t always have to wait for the golden hour to end up with cool photos. Sometimes, shooting in harsh sunlight can actually create dramatic results for shadow photography.
Typically, we wouldn’t really recommend taking photos when the sun is high in the sky. It often creates undesirable results because it’s usually too bright and creates strong contrasts.
But for shadow photography, those two elements are precisely what you want to achieve incredible results.
The harsh sunlight also works well whenever you’re shooting architecture and other geometrical structures. The sharp shadows the sun creates add dimension to these their framework which makes them look quite dramatic.
So walk around your area when the sun is high up in the sky. See how it interacts with the buildings around you. It won’t take long to see shadows casting all sorts of patterns that look pleasing to the eyes.
Just remember not to take photos at noon. Since the sun is directly above you, the shadows it creates typically look unappealing. Aim for taking pictures before or after 12 PM when the sun is at an angle. (10 AM or 3 PM are often ideal times).
