Beauty Glow

One of the ways you can use the sun in your photographs is to place your subject directly in front of the sun as in the above photograph. In the above photograph, it was late afternoon and the sun was low over the horizon. The sun can create a desirable halo or glow effect as an outline to your subject. I did not use a flash to front light the model in the above image. I wasn’t having any problems with uneven shadowing because of the trees overhead. You may want to consider using some type of lighting at times to fill-in shadows if desired. Photography is an art form and the conditions and subject should always be speaking to the creative goals of the photographer.
