Harsh sun in poor places
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?
