This week we are seeing warmer weather than we have had in a long time. So now is time to start getting out and taking pictures. The best time to get beautiful lighting in your images is the first hour after sunrise or the hour prior to sunset. If you're going to take photo during other times of the day you want to place your subject in the shade. Bright sunlight is not your friend when taking pictures, it will leave harsh shadows on the face. So knock the winter dust off your camera and get out there start shooting your friends and family.
