    I am supposed to take some little league team photos. The only problem is that it is going to be around noon. I know not the best lighting. Any ideas on how to get the best pics with the best exposure?

    If you can find some shade, that will help. Bright mid-day sun will cause dark shadows under thing that over hangs. Eye sockets and especially faces under ball caps. If you can't get into the shade (maybe even if you can)...you may need to find a way to get light onto their faces. A reflector would be a simple way...or flash, although using flash in bright light can be a bit tricky.

    HDR if you can get them to stand still. I'm sorry, that was cruel. Take what you have to and then take a lot when/if a cloud passes over.

    good luck

    Use your flash for fill light, if you have a speedlight, take it off camera and set it to the side and have someone else hold a reflector.
