Photography tips: theLightMatters

Some of my readers may already be aware of this, but my biggest photography tip on how to improve your photography is to remember theLightMatters.

You can’t make an image without light (although with many modern DSLRs that’s rapidly becoming an untruth too). Many photographers also believe you can’t make a good image without good light but that’s not strictly true. There is no such thing as bad light. It’s the application of it that’s generally at fault. Whatever type of light you have, if you know how to work with it you can make a good image.

So remember, making a good image isn’t about kit. It’s about light and the light matters. That’s why I called my blog It’s full of hints and tips about how to improve your photography and documents my journey into professional photography.
