Summer offers many opportunities, but bright sunny days challenge photographers. Modern cameras don’t have the ability to capture the incredible dynamic range that our eyes can see. On a bright sunny day, we must drop the exposure to avoid over exposing the highlights in our photographs. This causes the shadow areas to darken, often beyond the point of recovery. High contrast light and shadow can work for black and white photography, however some extra care is needed to avoid unflattering shadows. On the flip side, the hot weather creates storms, and skies are most interesting after stormy weather. Cloudy days offer soft light and help colours ‘pop’. For even better light, photograph your best images close to sunrise and sunset. Summer days are much longer and hotter. This forces photographers to shoot in the early mornings and late evenings. This isn’t always convenient, but it’s important to sell the advantages of a golden-hour session. In the summer daytime, seek shade, use lighting or reflectors to fill the shadows, and be safe in the sun. When photographing dogs in the summer, be mindful of the dog’s condition, use the shade, and bring water. Keeping photo shoots to an hour or less is advisable.
