Light is the Key to Improving your Photos

Updated: Nov 13, 2020

Light is the most important element of any photograph. You are capturing photons of light after all. I can’t even begin to express to you how important it is to embrace light in photography and understand it!

I remember when I first started out in photography. I’d always look at other photographers work and think how on earth have they got that to look so good. I’d go to the same locations they had been to. Then constantly scratch my head when my images were no where near this level. It got more and more frustrating for me as time went on. I just figured that all I needed was to work harder on it. Which did actually eventually lead to me figuring this out. One afternoon in the Peak District I stayed a lot later than normal. The sun started to set. I was looking at the back of my camera in disbelief.
