I was thinking about taking part in the shooting competition about the making of the grand opening in the school. I know most people will start their rehearsals in the afternoon, maybe about 3pm or so. I'm a user of the Powershot A70 (no $$$ to own SLR ) .
I know it is not the best idea to take any photos in the hot afternoon where overexpose pics are common. But can any pros give some tips on shooting in such bright conditions?
