UNDERSTANDINGLIGHT
T
hink of any night or low-light subject, and the onefactor more than any other that determines thesuccess of a photograph is the quality of light. From thewarm glow of a flickering candle flame or traffic trailson a busy road to a floodlit building against the twilightsky or colorful illuminations strung along a seaside pier,night and low-light photography is concerned more withharnessing and exploiting unusual lighting situationsthan anything else. An understanding of the differenttypes of illumination you’re likely to encounter, bothnatural and artificial, and the factors that influence thequality of light, is therefore vitally important if you’re tomake the most of each situation.
