Daylight (Three Photographs)

To view more of my photography please click on

I shoot in broad daylight. I have heard about and tried exposing to the left (i.e. to the left in the histogram as the brightest part of the photo has the most detail), and I have tried underexposing and bringing back the natural light. My preference in harsh light has been spot metering, though sometimes the computerized setting of the camera works just fine. No camera I have ever owned has as good a light meter as the Fuji XT-2 (these shots were taken with a Nikon and required a bit more post processing help but it was marginal). Most photographic articles you will read will tell you the noon day sun is a killer and the worst time of day to shoot. Don’t listen, you can learn more about light by working in harsher conditions.
