Good morning (ish) MMS friends. I’m so excited to finally finish up the second part of this post, so if you didn’t get a chance to read Part 1 (with directions on how to make your simple DIY Sun Diffuser) you can do so by clicking here.
The gist of it: Taking photos in direct sunlight can really be some of the trickiest lighting to work with. In part one, I give you some advice on little things you can do whether you have just your camera on your phone or a dslr, but best of all, I gave you a simple DIY sun diffuser, which I will show you how to utilize here now.
Honestly, the key is just using this amazing and super CHEAP contraption to create your own shade on a bright day. You won’t blow out your highlights which is muy importante (and no, I’m not talking about hair 🙂 -the brightest spots of your image, and you’ll still get the creamy soft skin tones people gush over!
So, when you are ready to take a photo (even if you’re not going for “professional”) look for the shade; a building a tree, or your very own DIY Sun Shade! Sometimes the best locations lack the best lighting; this is just one way to make it happen. I’ll certainly share more tips and tricks as we go along; there’s only about a million. 🙂
