Due to 51 holiday value summer season, in sunny of when Sun direct compared strongly, and in strongly of Sun following for portrait photography is compared difficult of a things, so in time Shang General select in sunny of 9 o'clock in the morning to 11 points, Dragon photography wedding photography, Chengdu wedding or is sunny of 3 o'clock in the afternoon to 5 points are good, because this two paragraph time Sun location than lower, light not is strongly, Sun in dipped Shi brightness moderate, not like noon of Sun Xia easy produced ugly of shadow.

in addition, soft character of the Sun's performance is relatively good, the eye is not easy under the influence of light, take out pictures look more natural. In the choice of location is there, in the shade or shady places more suitable for shooting soft light portrait photography, and when exposed to the Sun, light is strong, light rays is quite obvious, easy to use sunlight to create a special image.

     too strong light and subjects are easily affected by excess of light and exposure, loss of detail and sense of depth.

in terms of equipment, due to the sunny day light is sufficient, so not very strict with the equipment. But in outdoor portraits, often using reflectors, reflector is the most popular of EXCLUDE, fill light, eliminate shadows, prominent eyes, and so on which all of the help, and with it, take out pictures makes a big difference.

sunny in the main light is more noticeable when shooting outdoor portraits, character outlines easy shadow because the strong light, then we must use reflectors reflect light or absorb light to eliminate shadows.

Dragon photography wedding photography, Chengdu photos other both soft reflector plate function, when used in our flexo plate strong light can be soft, staring people in the softer light.

And on a clear day when the direction of light is quite obvious, so when shooting landscapes on sunny days the light used is very important. Sunny Ray is generally divided into several objects, the light is taken from behind the camera shooting front light, on the contrary, from the light hits the camera called the backlight behind the subject.

     from the camera and shot over the light next to the subject called half backlight or oblique light. In the case of backlighting or half the backlight when shooting, the contrast of light and shadow makes the subject generated a sense of depth. Sunset light is just half of the backlight. When the front light is very flat landscape images, backlight or half backlight screen will become very lively.

for outdoor portraits should be used for which type of light, many people often choose to shine bright direct sunlight from behind, positive light directly on the subject matter. Direct rays but most of the time the subjects would have to squint. If the position of the Sun, squinting of the light was flat on his face. If the position of the Sun is high, eyes and nose will have shadows. No matter which angle is not satisfactory.

this time don't let subjects at the direct rays of the Sun, which should place the subjects in a mild diffuse light. This trouble is easier to be solved on a cloudy day, as people know it, shooting outdoor portraits, many experts prefer a cloudy overcast day, rather than sunny days.

Dragon photography wedding photography, wedding in Chengdu cloudy weather may be a more suitable photograph. But on a cloudy day in the portraits, there are many interesting problems.

lens configuration problems, cloudy days can often seem low light and low light when using high speed shutter speed is to get a more stable, using a large aperture lens is also a way to get faster shutter speeds, for digital SLR, however, large aperture lenses are generally more expensive. Not enough light on a cloudy day when tripods are also more commonly used tools, in a slightly darker light, slow shutter when tripod than no tripod shooting success rate was much higher.
