Landscape Photography Mistake No. 6: Strong shadows
The opposite of dull light, strong sunlight, brings its own problems – deep shadows and harsh highlights.
As a rule it’s generally best to shoot landscape images early in the morning, late in the afternoon or in the early evening; the key being that the sun is at a relatively low angle in the sky.
As well as being stronger and brighter in the middle of the day, the sun is almost directly above the landscape and objects cast short, deep shadows that reveal little detail.
The lower, weaker sun of morning and evening results in longer, softer shadows that accentuate the form of the land.
