To put it frankly – harsh shadows in photos suck. But, sometimes when the sun is strong or the lighting inside is hard to work around, there are a few things you can do to combat the horrid shadow.
My e-book Pesky Shadows, Pretty Shadows can be of some help but here’s one little tip that can make a huge difference and doesn’t take any technical skill or special tools.
Potion the subject as far away from any walls as you can. The more distance between the person or object and a wall, the less strong the shadow that shows up on it will be. Give it a try like the shots below. It’s easy and work too.
