The purpose of this assignment was to experiment with sunlight. There are certain times of the day that can either help the subject or it can make the subject look terrible. I have found that the best time to take photographs are at times that one would not usually think to take photos. I think that in general most people would want to take pictures during the afternoon, but that could be the worst time to shoot! The sun is very harsh at that time of day. Taking portraits is definitely not recommended at that time. The person will either be squinting into the sunlight or there will be shadows under their eyes. The best times are before sunrise, sunrise, evening, sunset, and after sunset. At least I find those times to be the best for taking photos.
