3 for CC please - how do you shoot in full sun?

Or do you? I cannot keep my son in the shade, so I'm forced to take what I can get Smile
are there any must know secrets I need to know?

Oh, and I have absolutely no idea how to PP, so this is just with the iphoto tools. I just played around and have no idea what I'm doing! Smile

I am not familiar with your editing software at all, so not sure I can help you there! As for full sun with toddlers, imo, you do have to take what you get! Not to say that you cant bribe them and try your little heart out tho! lol
#1-looks a bit oversharpened to me, but I like the bright colors.
#2-I like it. the sky is awesome
#3-my fave of the bunch,
with editing for full sun, I try to underexpose by quite a bit for most of the photo, then bump it up with a curves layer and mask in the bright spots. It seems to help even out the exposure. There is probably a better way, but thats the way I do it
