The sun was behind and a little to the side. My daughter brought the girls over separately on 3 different nights over a week. We tried for the same time in the evening and the same light. It was much easier to focus on one at a time plus no fussing/fighting. She had a photo project in mind. After I shot those photos, I then experimented with the backlit. Daughter held reflector so that my camera was in the shade. Brought up the shadows on the face and increased exposure overall. C&C welcome 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. The large wall photos. I shot these in the shade on the lane.
