Harsh sun in poor places
11 months ago

I'm an NGO communications guy who goes to impoverished, rural places in Asia and Africa.

I am finding that most of my DSLR photography must occur in midday hours and that invariably there is harsh sun and dark shade. I can position my interviewees/subjects in the shade, say, under a tree, but when I compose a shot I still have the harsh sun off in the distance behind.

Of course, this makes my subject look like a silhouette.

Any tried-and-true advice for these situations?
