When you’re working with natural light, you really cannot affect the type of light you’re getting on the day you’ve scheduled your photoshoot.
You won’t be able to bring more clouds to the sky if the sun is too bright, and you can’t make the clouds go away if you’d rather have stronger light. That’s why you need to know these tricks so that you can use whatever light you’re getting in the best possible way. Learning to adjust your composition so that the cast or light direction complements your subject is crucial. It’s also a really good idea to learn how to use reflectors to bring out your clients’ best features.
