Shooting a TV Commercial outside at Noon
Hi Everyone,
I have a potential project shooting a car dealership with a announcer out front and wanted input and advice on shooting this in direct sunlight. The dealership faces East, and we would most likely shoot around noon (unfortunately that's the earliest time they want to shoot for the talent). So the sun would be coming in from the left of the person's face most likely.

I think will try to use a diffuser for the announcer(s) and the dealership would be in the background, hopefully not too bright or blown out. Any suggestions or advice?

Reflectors - and somebody to hold them - one or two - personally I like the effect gold provides, but as fill they work pretty well. Stands great if you can get them, but hand held ones work pretty well as long as wind is low.
