Sunny day photography can be a bit awkward. The harsh light and shadows can make it difficult to get any decent shots. However, it is possible to use this light to your advantage and make some good photographs.
The Glasgow Science Centre affords some neat opportunities for sunny day photography, especially if, like me, you are a lover of all things architecture and abstract. The steel buildings and their shapes can provide some great shots.
Many photographers just do not go out in this type of light. To be honest it can be a challenge. However, with a little thought and a polariser filter – an absolute must for reducing glare and boosting colours – it is possible to make some great shots. Architecture is especially good to photograph in these conditions provided you navigate away from the worst of the reflections.
