How to get great photos of the whole scene
Something I need to talk about...
One question I get a lot in my photography workshops is how to take a photo that shows both the subject on the ground and the sky. Especially on bright days with a clear blue sky, it can be hard to expose for the subject on the ground and the sky. The sky is just far too bright and comes out as bright white.
There are a couple of things that you can do if you want to have the sky show up in your photos, and a well-exposed subject on the ground.
How to take great portraits on a sunny day!
It’s been a very interesting summer this year. Discussions of my partner and I moving to Berlin after many years have come to a close and we decided that this December was the time to make the move.

Shooting into the sun
We’ve all had a time when we’ve wanted to take a photo of someone on a bright sunny day. The biggest problem people encounter is where to position the sun in relation to the subject of your photo. If you have the subject face the sun so their face is well-lit, they have to squint into the bright light. If you face the sun, their faces are usually shrouded in shadows, or the background becomes so bright you can’t see any face details at all. Today’s blog will give you some tips and tricks to get the best shots on a sunny day.

Welcome! I'm going to start off with a simple text post today, but in future, you can expect to see mainly photography on my blog. As a photographer with a keen interest in fashion, I thought why not combine the two and make my own fashion photography blog.
