One of the most important elements that make a photograph unique is lighting. Without good lighting or lighting at all having a striking image would be impossible.

If we cannot see it, it doesn’t exist.

Knowing how to work with day light is just as important as learning how to work with artificial light. Often a combination of  the two bring up astonishing results. Think of it as the brush of paint into a canvas.

Sure you can do it on Photoshop by shooting all in RAW, but there are some things such as light that cannot be reproduced completely.

And that’s where knowing a few basics come in handy.

Remember that the kind of light is as important as the angle in which you direct those beams of light. It’s a careful balance between your camera, your subject and your light source.
