Aubrey's photo session was done on a mostly sunny day. While people assume a sunny day is better for pictures, and it certainly helps for a more sunny disposition, we photographers prefer clouds because of the lower contrast. However, all of her daytime images were done during sunlight. And yet they don't show any problems due to the sun. Why? Because I'm a professional. The quality I give my clients must be consistent, no matter what the weather is. Conversely, we should capitalize on whatever proverbial lemons we're given and make lemonade. Each weather situation offers challenges... and opportunities!
Sunny days are refreshing, but the contrast, green grass casts, blue sky casts in the shade, and squniting eye problem can very difficult. So it's our job as professionals to make images that avoid those issues, while using the many benefits of that sunlight.
Aubrey is considering becoming a protographer. I hope she succeeds. But as the many thousands of others who "like to take pictures" have discovered, it's an easy business to get into... but an extremely difficult one to stay in. Not only must a professional learn all the aspects of light, posing, and equipment, but also operate a financially profitable business... and be able to do so amidst a climate of "do-it-yourselfers" who will do it for next to nothing. Well, as the old saying goes... Ya get whatcha pay for! :)
America... gotta love it!
