Conditions

  • Overcast. Easy to work with, because of of the sky will radiant soft light which is perfect for taking shots of people. If the sun is low it may cause part of the sky to be overly glary to look at, which is uncoforable for the group to endure. If this is the case put the sun to the side.
  • A sunny day. If sun is high overhead, behind you is fine? This way it will fall in on peoples faces.
