Open Shade

A shot I took in Open Shade – because I forgot my flash!

“Open Shade” means bright shade that is lit by reflected light. This gives you nice soft light. You cannot direct it, so you may have to direct your subject or model. Try Open Shade for your next shots, to get a good feeling for what it can and cannot do. And do not forget your white balance: set it to “Shade”!
