Going to ask a few questions which will probably seem rather silly to most of you But, as I am VERY new to photography of any description I hope you will forgive my ignorance. After looking at the lovely photographs in the Gallery and admiring their clarity and colour, I can see I have a great deal to learn.
I have problems with lighting when taking photographs. When shooting into the sun I inevitably get a rather hazy sort of picture, where the building, person or whatever is almost invisible due to the glare. I dont use the flash during bright sun, is this correct or incorrect?
Also, when taking photographs on a dull grey day, the results are awful. The sky is white/grey in colour, the lake or river is indistinguishable from the sky and any foreground images, buildings, trees etc. are more or less the same colour. All in all I end up with a very dull and miserable picture. What am I doing wrong?
Any hints, tips or advice welcome
