EX­PERT INS IGHT The mid­day sun

David says… The higher the sun gets, the harder the light, as it has less at­mos­phere to travel through. If the sun is off to the side, this can re­sult in dra­matic side-light­ing, with punchy colours and deep, crisp shad­ows, which is ideal for sub­jects like ar­chi­tec­ture. How­ever, if the sun is di­rectly be­hind you, with the shad­ows fall­ing be­hind the sub­ject you’re shoot­ing, the light­ing can look very flat. This is why the cas­tle in An­drew’s Hot­shot doesn’t look as dra­matic as it might. Thank­fully, the crash­ing waves in the fore­ground more than make up for it!
