I schedule sessions at times according to how I want the sun, and pick locations I’m familiar with according to where the sun will be. I never schedule sessions around noon. It’s either around 9 am, or 3pm (fall) or 5:30 pm (summer). I have one location that’s one of my go-to spots for either time because it has abandoned sheds which block the light from one side, and trees on the other side which block it from the other direction. So no matter what time of day or how the sun is, that location has multiple areas that work. Another of my typical locations has a building that blocks the sun in the west so I use it for evening sessions a lot. It’s somewhat of a science.
