I recently posted this in thephotoforum: How to get No-shadow, No-highlight smooth lighting outdoor And got these opinions from forum members: 1. Subjects to be placed in open shade 2. Right times are early morning and evening when clouds diffuse the light 3. Metering to be done for subject - Not matrix Keeping all these in mind, I tried shooting a friend. I also positioned him to get natural back light and some bokeh. Here is the raw file: DSC_0565.NEF Do I always get haze like this? - I could get rid of this by moving my black slider in photoshop - However, would like to know if there is a way eliminating this at camera level. I am happy with the exposure I got in the subject's face. Still, I feel there is something missing. I am desperate to take this to the next level. Hence request your comments pl. Camera settings for the attached pic.: - Nikon D3200 (Cropped sensor DSLR) f/1.8 1/160 second ISO 200 50 mm prime lens No light other than natural.
