Summertime shots by the pool in the bright sun can be tricky. The water is reflective and makes everything a bit brighter. So, watch that shutter speed. Here’s a shot by the pool in the afternoon in full sun and my manual settings to go with it.
ISO – 125 (low is best in bright sun)
aperture – F 2.8 (my preference for a single child shot)
shutter speed – 1/1250 second (it’s bright out so you need the shutter speed to be fast for proper exposure
lens – 50mm 1.2
