“Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” – George Eastman.
Learning the difference between lousy light, good light, and great light is a game-changer.
At first, all light looks the same, but the more you keep shooting, the more you notice the subtle differences in the quality of light. Pay attention to the light, take notes and experiment. The best photographers know how to find the best light, manipulate or manufacture their own.
The most beautiful light for beginners is flat, even daylight. This light can be found outdoors in overcast conditions, under an eve, awning or anywhere where there is solid shade.
