Nikon Behind the Scenes Tips For Shooting Photos in Bad Light

Nikon has been working on a series of instructional videos they call Nikon Behind the Scenes and they're just now kicking off season two. The first installment of the new season is a helpful three-minute video by photographer Cliff Mautner about how to get good photos in less-than-ideal lighting conditions.

This is actually one of the questions we receive most here at PopPhoto.com, mainly because life doesn't always revolve around the golden hour (as much as we'd like it to). There are some handy tips in there from a shooter with lots and lots of experience.

So, give the video a look and remember that harsh midday sun isn't preventing you from taking photos, it's daring you to.
