Twenty Two Outstanding Summer Photos

by David Peterson 0 comments

Summertime brings lots of great photo opportunities, but you're not the only one who can get burned by the sun - your photos can, too. Strong light can be a problem for summer shots, so be aware of the sun's position and the harsh shadows that might ruin your shot. You may need to compensate with extras like reflectors, polarizing filters and fill-flash. Remember also that summer is a theme, and make sure your images reflect not only that summertime activity but also give your viewer a feel for the season itself.
