    Is he shooting the sun or just staging it?  If it’s the Sun, it’s quite high by the shadows on his shirt and the index angle.  If the Sun’s altitude is around 80° as it appears from the index arm, why has he no hat on.  The light on his shirt might be the Sun, or just daylight coming down from the sky.  DaveP
