This chapter covered many issues regarding reading, controlling and adding light. Some of the key points included the following:

■ It's the quality, type, intensity, and direction of light that more than anything else will define your pictures.

■ Learn to read the light that you are shooting under, so you can adjust, compensate, or change it to get the picture you want.

■ Light has an emotional value that creates a mood, impression, or environment that you can capture or control in your photography.

■ There are various pros and cons about using your digital camera's built-in flash to illuminate a scene or subject.

■ Using an external strobelight is almost always better than the camera's built-in flash. TTL is the best kind of external strobelight, but only if your camera is TTL enabled and matches the particular strobe.

■ Basic studio lighting doesn't have to be complicated or expensive, and it allows you to shoot like the pros.
