1. Golden Era During the Day
In a day, for few moments, the weather on the outside is extremely perfect for photography, one at the sunrise and one at sunset. During these times of the day, the light on the outside is very warm and bright, with the absence of overexposure. The brightness is perfect for your favorite. You can head out in the open to find the most exciting moment to capture during these two time periods.
In the early mornings, the sun provides a proper bliss with nature, and the surrounding looks really pretty, while during sunset, the wind around goes back to becoming much cooler, while the surrounding gets a more on the softer side, giving you a great picture with soft edges, giving you the perfect Instagram filter provided by mother nature.
Pictures in the morning will be more warm and saturated in the bright light, a perfect moment to snap on those early moments.
These moments may not last long, depending on the outside weather conditions.
2. Move Along with the Light
A major tips or point to bring out is that always ask your subject to be facing towards the lights at an angle and not directly facing the sunlight, or your photos would turn up pretty overexposed. You need to figure out the right angle that brings about the perfect lighting conditions for your subject and your photographs.
The angle you seek would just about bring a light glow on the face on your subject, that you can easily catch, during the course of your photo session.
Ensure that the subject you take photos of do not bend away from the light too much, or you would end up with too much shadows on your instant film.
During the golden era at sunset, make use of the gloomy weather and play with your back light settings to take your perfect image. The surrounding light will have a blissful radiating effect around your subject and give the much needed life to your photos.
3. Try Different

A different perspective all always yield a much better and desired result than the routine snaps.
Get to ground and find various new angles to get the most interesting collage of your pictures.
