I had to overcome the obstacle of A LOT of sunshine on Saturday.  It was the only day that would work for all three of us, but unfortunately the sun was bright and harsh.  However, I think I was able to work around it by finding some areas that blocked the sun and then metering on the ground verses the sky.  My models were really good sports as well.  I shot in Manual Priority the whole time to challenge myself, it was a lot more difficult then I thought it was going to be, especially with the constant changing light.  The Aperture and Shutter Speed varies throughout each photograph.  I cleaned up each photo in Photoshop, using an Adjustment Levels layer, I would do an overlay on a duplicate layer to play with more contrast and lower the opacity on the layer.  I soften the skin using the brush tool.  I would lighten the eyes with the level tool after selecting them.  The stamp tool was used to clean any blemishes.  I had a lot of fun and encounter a lot of new challenges.
