Taking pictures in hot weather can be a challenge, especially if you’re not prepared. And the weather on this shoot was a doozy - even in September the temps were near (or at) 100 degrees. From dealing with sweat and sun glare to dealing with the heat itself, there are a few things you should keep in mind when shooting in extremely hot temps.
First, sweat can be a major issue. Not only can it make you uncomfortable, but it can also ruin the hard work of your make up artists and talent can quickly become exhausted. Make sure to bring a towel and some extra clothes so you can keep yourself and your gear dry along with water - lots and lots of water. If you’re shooting outdoors, try to find a shady spot to take your photos.
Second, the sun can be a major issue when shooting in hot weather. Sun glare can make it difficult to see what you’re shooting, and can also cause your photos to be overexposed. Make sure to use a lens hood or a reflector to help reduce the glare. I've also hired assistants to hold umbrellas over the talent to help block the sun - every bit of relief helps!
Keep these tips in mind and you’ll be ready to take on the heat!
