Where is the light coming from

Awareness of where the light is coming from—both its source and its direction—informs the settings you'll use on your camera to achieve the best exposure. It also leads you to choose where to position your subject and/or your camera in relation to that light. As you begin to see where the light is coming from, you train your eye to analyze how many different types of light there are and how light is transformed when it comes into contact with different objects (for example, when it's reflected off the surface of a large, white wall).
