Brilliant sunshine brings challenges

We had friends visiting this weekend and the sunshine for Scotland was incredible. The portrait here at high noon of David looks very straightforward but with the sun blazing down from behind and the brim of his hat it took a bit of tweaking.  After playing around with wireless flash I resorted to a lastolite trigrip reflector and then quickly flipped over to the white side as the glint of silver just about blinded him.  I’m never a fan of bright sunlight and haven’t changed my views really…

The bokeh from the Samyang 85mm f1.4 shows again what a bargain that lens was.
