Shooting in strong sun

My website: Wedding Photographers in Kent

I've just received the above image of me 'in action' at the recent wedding of Lucy and James at The Burlington Hotel in Folkestone. The sun was very strong, undiffused by clouds, and there was only a small patch of open shade for the group photos. Unfortunately, when I lined myself up to take the shots I had the sun shining directly into my lens, causing significant flare and loss of contrast. We had a look in the hotel and managed to find a poster made of stiff cardboard which I then asked a guest to shade me with. It worked a treat.

And an example of an image shot this way.
