Maybe someone in here can help me out? Correct me if I'm wrong, PLEASE. Me and another "semi/pro/consumer Photographer" were discussing, when taking outside formals/groups pictures. I told him I try to place people in shade and if I can't do that, then I try to place them with the sun to their backs. Now, I'm really not worry about sun flare because I shoot with a hood and position my self to where it wouldn't be a problem. But my buddy swears that this is wrong, which I've been shooting this way for a few years now and never once had a problem. He, says the "pros" shoot with the sun to their back, which I understand that. I mean the sun is a nice fill for the face but at the same time it's hard to tell the couple, group not to squink when you are taking the picture. So, please help me address this to my friend, and if I'm wrong I'll let him now as well,but....I don't think I am.
