The Weekly Photography Challenge – High Noon

High Noon, when the sun is its most harsh, when things tend to get very bright, can be a tough time to make a photograph – that’s why, this week, we’re challenging you to share your best ‘high noon’ photograph in this week’s weekly challenge.

Remember to tag your photographs #dPSHighNoon

Generally most photographers will try to avoid high-noon, or the middle of the day, so that they don’t need to struggle with the harsh light (and in some cases, the heat, though from a cold Melbourne afternoon I say ‘bring the heat!’) but when you have a small window in which to shoot and you have to go and make photos, all you can do is the best you can do!

Here are a couple of little helpers on the blog to help you out;

Your photograph can be of anything, a portrait, a wildlife scene, a landscape, but it must be taken in the middle of the day – we’re not checkin’ exif because we trust you! Ha.

But how do I upload my photos?

Upload your photo into the comments field below this post (look for the little camera icon in the Disqus comments section below this post) and they’ll get embedded for us all to see. Or, if you’d prefer, upload them to your favourite photo-sharing site and leave the link to them.
