In case there's anyone who hasn't thought about this - when you wear
sunglasses when shooting you are NOT seeing anything close to what your
lens and film are seeing. You may be 'seeing' a wonderful, snappy, scene
through the viewfinder, while your lens and film are seeing and
recording a washed out mess. It really is best to take off the shades
before shooting.
