Bright sunlight can be a problem when taking pictures. Not only does it make your subject squint, but it can cast strong unsightly shadows from their nose, hair, chin and eye sockets. Ideally, the best time to take photos is when the light is soft and diffused such as in the mornings or evenings. But often waiting for the perfect hour is not practical for you or your subjects. This is when shade can be your friend.
Cell phones have come a long way, and art galleries are starting to take notice. WGHP Channel 8's Natalie Wilson, in North Carolina (myfox8.com), recently featured a smartphone art exhibit called "Oh Snap!" being showcased at The Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro. Entries did not need to be submitted by professional artists. Submissions were received from as far away as Paris and Ireland.
