5. In cloudy days, we should also pay attention to the problem of light replenishment. It is not that cloudy days do not need light replenishment. Some minor changes in light replenishment are likely to have a significant impact in the post-processing stage.

6. Pay attention to the light balance in the supplementary area of the main body of the portrait. It's not necessarily a tonic for the whole body. Most of the time, it's probably just a local tonic.
