See the light like a pro: everything you were afraid to ask about natural light

When it comes to light, it’s quality, not quantity, that counts. A sunny day may make you more inclined to go out and take pictures, but it doesn’t guarantee you’ll get great shots. In fact, you are just as likely to capture award-winning pictures on a dark, stormy afternoon as you are under a cloudless sky.

Your digital camera can compensate for low light by cranking up the ISO, opening up the aperture, using longer shutter speeds and getting essential support from a tripod. However, your camera can’t do much about the way the light falls upon your subject, and it is this that makes or breaks a picture.
