Outdoor Lighting Problem - Need Advice
Posted 07 April 2005 - 01:54 AM
Our house faces east and the backyard is dead west.
I'm having problems getting the right lighting for my afternoon newsletter-needs-to-happen photo crisis'. The east side of the house gives me too dark of light. The west side of the house gives me too harsh of shadows and too bright light.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

If the light is still too bright, you can create a "shade" with some light weight fabric. Sometimes it seems like you need several arms. Use you a tripod, set the camera's self timer, and that will give you time to get the reflector in position.

Also, you may want to wait until close to sunset or later in the evening. Light tends to be a little more diffused the later it gets instead of the direct harsh shadows that mid afternoon can create, although be careful not to wait so long that you lsot your light behind a gate or fence. Hope that helps.
