5. Natural light

Aim: The variety of outdoor light, how to make the best use of it, and how to chose appropriate lighting conditions for particular subjects. Thinking about  light as an almost tangible commodity – to deliberately bring atmosphere and texture to photography.

Natural light comes from a single source, the sun. The time of day and year will affect how this light can be captured, offering an infinite amount of  effects on photographs. I hope this part of the course will enable me to make the best use of this resource.
