Shooting under direct Sunlight
10

Shooting a headshot under direct summer sunlight was a big challenge for me in the past, and usually I avoided shooting portraits or headshots from 11:00AM to 5:00PM in the summer using natural light, as it's hard for me to get a balanced light for faces. However, with a flash with 32" diffuser, a 42" white color reflector, I was able to capture the shot below yesterday afternoon - using Sun on the back as a FREE hair light, flash with diffuser on the upper left side as the key light while using the reflector on lower right/under chin as fill light.
Any Constructive comments are welcome. Thanks, Edward
