Light, specifically natural light and how to harness it to create striking compositions, is one of the first things you’ll need to learn about as a beginner photographer.
Light is absolutely key to photography. Quite simply, photographs cannot exist without light.
Traditional film cameras and modern digital cameras may feature wildly different operational templates but the fundamentals remain the same; neither have been able to find a substitute for light. Or stumble across a way to take visually appealing photographs in the complete absence of light. Unless you’re creatively making black frames.
Just in case you haven’t gotten the gist yet, having a clear understanding of the various ways in which light affects photographs. And the sources of light in relation to photography (both natural light and artificial light) along with their various applications, will go a long way towards helping you become a more accomplished photographer.
Master light, master photography. Study the detail in this article to help you capture amazing photographs.
