Exercise: Outdoor portraits

I have rather learnt the hard way for this area of photography.  There are countless examples of me trying to get portraits in the wrong kind of outdoor light: faces screwed up in the sunlight, horrible shadows under the nose, burnt out highlights, irretrievable shadows etc etc

Reflectors have saved my work on more than one occasion and I am a big fan.

I worked through this exercise when studying People and Place – some of the results can be seen in my blog here: http://helenphotography.blogspot.co.uk/2010/08/exercise-3-experimenting-with-light.html  and I don’t feel I need to repeat it at this stage.
