Exercise 32 - Variety with a low sun

In this exercise I will demonstrate the difficulty of shooting with low sun. This is a good exercise to do in Winter as the sun is low most of the day.
I need to choose any subject for this, but they must be in sunlight. I need to take the subject in:

  • Frontal lighting with the sun behind the camera including reflections of shiny surfaces. My shadows need to be avoided.
  • Side lighting placing the sun on the left or right and keeping the subject half shadow half light. Overexposure could occur
  • Back lighting where the sun is behind the subject. Bracketing could be useful.
  • Edge lighting where the sun is in front of the camera but just outside the frame
