Tip of the Day – Subject Placement
Careful placement of your subject (or changing your angle, viewpoint or perspective through lens choice) when shooting against a background with bright highlight areas is important. Even if some areas of the background are blown out, try to position your subject against an area of solid colour or detail, to stop parts of them from disappearing into a blown-out background. Especially important if you are photographing a white or partially white dog!
