Today’s challenge is about working with challenging light. It can be notoriously difficult to get a good shot at noon, since the sun is overhead and the light is generally harsh and not very flattering. For today’s shot, try to get out in the middle of the day when the lighting is bright. Maybe you can use the shadows to your advantage, or find a high contrast to capture. Let’s see what you can do!

About Steve Troletti

I’m a Location Scout, Editorial, Nature, Wildlife and Environmental Photographer based in Malibu, California. I specialize in Nature and Urban Nature photography including Infrared Landscapes. The Bulk of my work takes place in the Los Angeles, California area, Greater Montreal Region, Canada, Switzerland, France and Varese in Northern Italy.

Ethical wildlife photography is the main priority and focus of my work. A minimum disturbance of the animals, their habitat and the environment is my top priority. This applies as much to total wilderness areas as it does to urban nature environments.

Ongoing education of environmental issues and building awareness for the protection of wildlife and wilderness areas around the world is what drives me to document the beauty that surrounds us.

    Gonna be really cool to see what comes out of this one. I am soooooo bad at this type of shot that I want to pack away my gear and put it on eBay each time I see my results.

    So far, the few Noon shots show what I feared however, that color is bad at this time no matter what and folks switch to B&W mode.

    I am going to try a color shot if it kills me, and it probably will. It is almost noon.
