Why Create Shade During The Day? - If you have to take photographs in the middle of the day make sure you make your own shade.
It's best to avoid the middle of the day when taking shots of flowers but what do you do if you're in a place you can't return to easily, you see an amazing flower and you look up at the sky and see the sun's too high (not that we have this problem at the moment!). Do you shake your head in disappointment and leave the flower behind? No. You get your camera out and create your own shade.
Use Your Body
Taken in direct sunlight.
Taken using the body as shade.
If you're a little more organised and have room in your bag or car to carry some helpful photography props there are a few you can take. Reflectors and diffusers are the obvious choices but a cheaper option would be a piece of card, cloth or towel. Just remember you need something or someone to hold these up or you could do this yourself and put the camera on a self timer. Make sure your shade-creator is a neutral colour too otherwise your image will have a slight colour cast.
