Infographic: Shooting Portraits During the Daytime



We’ve featured a couple of original infographics on the site before, and here’s our latest. In this infographic, we give you the details on how to shoot portraits during the daytime. You don’t need to wait for the Golden Hour to do this. Instead, what you need to do is find a way to keep the sun off of the person’s face and equalize the exposure overall on the whole body. Why? Because this is the main subject of your portrait.

Yes, you lose the details in the highlights and in the background–but this is portraiture, not an HDR. And for what it’s worth, HDR portraiture should never be done.

If you enjoy this infographic, be sure to check out our others on posing a subject and a seated subject.
