The Assignment

Shoot an outdoor portrait during sunrise, midday or sunset. Shoot into the sun but use off camera flash to “overpower” the sun and illuminate your subjects. Try to make your background colors vivid by not blowing out your skies. Consider shooting slighly upwards, as discussed in the video, to show the “upground.”
