Photography is my hobby and although it is not as exciting as collecting stamps, it is something I am having a lot of fun with. I travel quite a bit and photography is a nice way to document exotic, romote, beautiful and faraway places, people and animals.

Shooting into the sun.

Published January 11th, 2012

We have all heard the rule, always make sure the sun is behind you. Well, sometimes we need to break that rule. The two pics below illustrate my point. In both of them I am shooting directly into the sunset. In the first picture the sun is just out of frame and in the second one the sun is directly behind my son's head, creating the halo effect.
