Outdoor Photography Tip - Beware of Dappled Shade

My tip for today involves shooting in the great outdoors. Do not shoot in dappled shade. That is shade with sunlight interspersed. It almost never results in a good image. The highs and lows are too extreme to make a good picture. I have bullheadedly taken shots in dappled shade. The results have not been good. Take shots in full shade. Use a reflector or flash if need. Avoid dappled shade.
