Always try to get the sun behind you! When you shoot the sun in front of you the thing you are shooting is going to go very dark! So the best thing is always to get the sun behind you... If the sun isn't too bright (sun set etc.) then you can shoot the sun in front of you.


Hope this helps!

I would suggest you check out a couple of books on basic photography. Some of the Kodak books are very nice and easy to understand...Grab one of these at the library and learn those basic photo techniques, ie...positioning of the light. Learn those basics now will save you time and trouble in the future!

Oh boy, are we in for a treat! Why didn't you just do that in the first place?

Use the computer for research, but don't skip the books. Take the books, look and study the photos and the techniques used. If you learn those basics you will be a happy photographer. Skip em and you will be just another person with a camera. You can take the book out in the field with you as you shoot (try the National Geographic Field Guide for Photographers.)

Ill try to find sutmhing on amazon.com. The only effect I know to do with a camera is a one second exposure whil snapping a pic of a stream or stuff.
