What type of camera are you using??? Fully auto? Digital SLR?
Get closer to the subject and have him tip his hat back. Use a flash if you have one because it will override the sunlight and may help eliminate shadows.
Taking pictures in the bright sun can be a challenge. Maybe try to take the photo in the shade.
I'm no expert and this is "all I got" for ya'
PS....frame-focus-steady applies to still photography as well.
Why shoot on the last day what you wouldn't shoot on the first?
