Photograph 4 - Open Shade

Bright sunny evening shot in open shade. My beautiful wife agreed to be the subject of one of my photos and even stopped making dinner to help me with the assignment. The light reflected off of the siding of the house helped to light the area.

Photograph a person outdoors lit by open shade. If the weather is overcast, you can shoot this almost anywhere since the clouds produce the effect of open shade. If the day is sunny, you will find open shade in outdoor shadow areas–for example, in the shade of a tree or a building.

Only affiliation with the New York Institute of Photography is that I am a student in the Complete Course in Professional Photography. I highly recommend the institute for your photographic training if you are interesting in taking professional quality photographs, can't get to a regular classroom, and/or want to enroll in the only distance learning school in the top 5 rated photography schools in the USA.
