Lots of photographers, and people who teach them, talk about the advantages of shooting under a cloudy sky, or of having the sun’s light behind you. Increasingly, I’m enjoying pointing my camera straight into the sun.
Of course, as above, this can force you into a monochrome presentation (although the dock above is in color). But I remember, during my time in publishing technology and then again in VR, learning about “emissive” as opposed to reflective color. I don’t remember the physics or the engineering, but I like it.
Of course, the color/monochrome continuum isn’t binary. Let’s take three steps into total whiteness overload.
Anyhow, the sun is my friend. If you take the conventional advice you spend all your time worrying about shape, and subtle shadings, and other grown-up stuff that isn’t rock-&-roll at all.
