Tip of the Day – Shade the lens
Capturing backlit shots can be really challenging. Most lenses usually struggle to find focus when they face directly into the sun. When you add a moving subject, this often results in the autofocus system not being able to track the subject, giving you many out of focus shots. You can help your camera out by making sure you and your camera are in the shade, even if your subject is in the sun.
