How to Take Photos on a Sunny Day


Capturing special moments with the click of a camera can be an exciting occasion. However, taking pictures outdoors, especially on a sunny day can result in photos that are not the best quality. It is common for photos taken outdoors to come out looking either too dark or too light. You can use some basic techniques to make your outdoor photos look like they were taken by a professional photographer.

  • Choose specific times of the day to take photos outdoors. The best time to take photos on a sunny day is either an hour before sunset or just after sunrise.

  • Locate a shady location outside when taking photos on a sunny day. This will help soften the sunlight. Find a tree or a tall building to help shield the sun while taking the pictures. You can also let the subject turn his back to the sun.

  • Take photos on a sunny day while using a collapsible reflector or a white sheet. Reflectors help to bounce the sunlight in various unusual locations, enhancing the look of the photo.

  • Tilt your camera at different angles to get the best shot. Looking at the LCD screen can give you an idea of what your pictures will look like.

  • Use your flash when taking pictures outdoors in the sun to eliminate the shadows on the person's face.
