Before I talk about turning off the flash let’s mention turning on the flash first. In mid day full-sun where there are no clouds, please please please use your flash. Without flash your baby’s face will have dark shadows under the eyes, nose, and chin. With flash your baby’s face will be soft, without the harsh shadows. In early morning or early evening sun this isn’t such a big problem because the sun is lower but I still recommend using your flash. Turning off the flash can create some great images but you need to have some wrap-around lighting present. Wrap-around lighting is when the light comes in past your subject, hits something like a wall and bounces back onto your subject.
