Beautiful Midday Light

November 20, 2019  •  1 Comment

Everyone loves the beautiful, diffused light of the golden hour right before the sunset, but our lives exist outside of that hour.

Here’s the good news. There are stunning images waiting to be made in the middle of the day. Right when the sun is at its highest zenith in the sky, you can create beautiful images. In fact, some images work best when the sun is high in the sky. But, as photographers know, midday sun creates more challenges than it does solutions. No matter what type of photography we do, at TerrificShot, we know the techniques that tame the midday light.

This session was done at midday when the sun is high and the light is harsh. 

The light on that day was superb, and the joy of this beautiful family made even more enjoyable to shoot. 

We love capturing precious memories for families and we think we more than accomplished that with this session!

I think it is great. I love the softness and subtlety of the light. It is not as harsh and direct as midday light can be, but it still has that feeling of bright sun shining through. I also love how clearly the shadows are defined. This is something that is harder to do in midday lighting because shadows can get lost in the sun. But this photo shows just how lovely those shadows can be!
