contrasty lighting

Fashion Photography in Indonesia

Midday sunlight is terrible for outdoor portraits. It's too contrasty for digital sensors to handle. In other words, the shadows go black and the highlights appear too bright, compared to what the human eye and brain see. That’s why it was a struggle to get good pictures when I photographed the spectacular annual Jember Fashion Carnival in Jember, East Java, Indonesia last month.
