I just found out a new technique! Such a simple easy to remember rule… When taking a picture in 100% sunshine you set your F-Stop=16 – ISO=100 and shutter speed=100. This will produce perfect exposure in the sun every time.
This picture was taken using Sunny 16 at an incredible fun maze right before Halloween this year. The maze was 1 mile of twists and turns which connected to a corn maze. There was even a guy who maned the center just in case you found your self lost but really that is what you hope will happen if you find yourself in a maze.
1. The sun must be high enough to be bright
2. Subject must be in the sun
3. Make sure the sun isn’t behind a cloud must be full sunshine.
4. Conditions should be average meaning no snow or sand etc.
Interesting Fact: Shade is about 3 stops darker than sun (8x’s darker) When using Sunny 16 with some shade in the picture you can decide what you want to do either zoom in on your subject so there is no shade or maybe open up 1 stop and see what happens your shadows might look better and the subject would probably be o.k.
If you have a starting point in the sunshine you can edit and play!
