Using Open Shade in Your Photos

What the heck is open shade anyways? 🤷🏼‍♀️

Imagine you are at the park, it’s a bright sunny day and you are burning up. ☀️There’s a huge oak tree casting a nice big shadow on the ground. You stand under it and immediately feel relief from the sun.

That amazing resource is open shade and it can be a total lifesaver when you are taking photos!

It allows your camera to soak up the ample light provided outside, and it also gives you the benefit of even light on your subject.

Direct sunlight can be difficult to master at first. It can cause weird shadows to fall on your subject(s). The beauty of open shade is that it removes that harsh direct light (similar to a cloudy day) and provides you with an umbrella effect...giving you a nice even light to work with.

Open shade is my go to resource when I take photos outside. Give it a try and let me know how it goes for you!!!

Always cheering you on- Jana
