Shooting Mid Day Sun

Do you have a fear of getting your clients out when the sun is high? Are you afraid to shoot mid day? I know when I started photography I was. There was something so daunting about the big bright sun... to ease yourself into it I suggest doing some fashion based work. Focus on those bold black and whites, learn to love the harsh shadows. I still love sunrise and sunset session don't get me wrong but shooting mid day can also have a beautiful effect. This one in particular was difficult because my camera kept heating up, the ocean spray, the Australian heat but I love how muted and soft the tones are and how real the emotion is in them.
