While it is generally known that photos during the harsh midday sunlight are not the most pleasing, this light can still make your scene quite nice given the right circumstances.
This photo was taken shortly after noon on a bright and sunny day. I really shouldn’t have included the actual sun in the photo as it’s now a big bright whitespace in the sky, but I wanted to capture the person walking by within the large expanse of an area.
The sun that day gave way to quite the hazy atmosphere in the background, which is what I loved about this view. The contrast between the vibrant foreground and the hazy background really caught my eye.
The sun provides great lighting for all types of photography so it’s best to know what works and what doesn’t and what you really want out of your shot.
