I have been reading the book “Understanding Exposure” by Bryan Peterson. Although I am not done yet I have been getting some good tips and advises on how to take better pictures by “guess what”…understanding exposure!
One thing that he said was that most of his pictures are outside but are taken in a “Cloudy” setting and he rarely changes it! i got to try that more often, his reasons for that are in the book.
Another cool tip…this one I have heard before. On a bright sunny day you are better off shooting in the early morning or from late afternoon to dusk. The light between 11:00am and 3:00pm he calls it poolside light, its too bright and the light will reflect off differently not giving you a good balance and your pictures are not going to look that great.
Well he has so many other tips so i definately recomend his book. You don’t have to be a profesional to take good pictures.
