Improv shoots are always fun! An upside to an unplanned shoot is anything can happen. The downside is anything can happen. Luckily for me this improv shoot that involved a friend and a pile of leaves resulted in a couple good shots and a few lessons in photography. The biggest lesson I learned? Angles do matter. Especially when shooting into the sunlight. The slightest change of an angle can completely change the picture.
Photo #1: The image is back-lit but with plenty of light on the face. Photo #2: A slightly lower angle exposing the sunlight results is a dark picture but with his face highlighted by the sun Photo #3: Angle from above results in plenty of light on his face and also some nice highlights on his hair. Photo #4: Low angle directly into the sun results in plenty of light and his face, highlights, and sun rays. Photo #5: Low angle with the entire sun exposed results in too dark of a photo.
