Can we talk about the different kinds of natural light to shoot in? Not sure if it's discussed in Understanding Exposure or not (I finally got it!), and if it is, I'm not there yet.
I shoot mostly in full shade. Mostly because there's an abundance of it in our yard, but also, when we first moved here, I remember taking some photos (pre-DSLR) in the sun, and some on here suggested moving him to the shade. I saw an immediate difference and all the shadows on his face were gone. So I never really shot out of the shade since.
So am I limiting myself? I know I've seen some people talk about shooting in the morning, or evening light. Does that mean not in the shade? If so, do you not get the shadows that you get when shooting at, say, 2pm?
I hope I don't sound stupid or anything
