In this video snapshot Josh discusses harsh lighting and shows us an example of how he used different angles to work around a tough lighting situation.

Check out the video below to hear his thoughts and learn his work-around:

While I was shooting some images of my wife, Layla, for her new t-shirt design, I decided to turn her around and try a couple of shots facing the sun to give you a good visual of the difference the right angle can make. In the first shot, she is facing the sun and in the second shot, she is standing in the exact same spot, but turned around with the sun behind her. The harsh light from the sun puts hard shadows on her face while she is facing it. Simply turning her around made all the difference in the world, and this is a great example of soft light versus hard light.
