Overpowering the Sun with OCF


As wedding photographers, we frequently have to take portraits during the middle of the day when the sun is high in the sky. And here in Colorado, we have 300 days of sun each year, so this is no easy task. How do you handle it? In this session, we’ll take you through our three off-camera flash setups for taming midday sun.

Topics covered:

  • How to use hard light for your advantage, not your detriment.
  • How to blend OCF with ambient light to create impactful images.
  • How to use the sun as a “hairlight.”
  • How to use the sun as a “split light.”
