Learn to control and modify the light in order to produce a professionally lit portrait

In the studio, light sources can be added or removed, positioned precisely, and modified to create exactly the lighting effect you have in mind. When working with existing light, on the other hand, your choices are somewhat more limited. Since you will very rarely find perfect existing light on location, this means that you must learn to control and modify the light in order to produce a professionally lit portrait. This process begins with an understanding of the tools used to bounce and diffuse existing light, which are covered in this chapter—along with techniques for creating portraits with existing light only. The next step is augmenting the existing light with additional light sources, which will be covered in chapter 5.
