No matter why you came into contact with photography, I believe that if you have some experience in photography, you will realize the importance of light to photography. Light can be described as the soul of photography, there is light and there is shadow. Photography is to rely on light to capture images, and to form real image effects through light. This technique contains superb observation concepts and techniques for capturing moments of light and shadow, which freeze the beauty of moments.

Light energy affects composition, light energy affects color, light energy affects the line shape of the picture, light energy affects the texture of the picture, and light can also deepen the artistic conception of the picture. Light can be divided into hard light and soft light according to its nature; according to its direction, it can be divided into smooth light, side light, back light and top light. Combined with the process of the rising and setting of the sun, the light atmosphere of the day can be changed to sunrise and sunset light, normal light, top light, and night low light.

Shadow capture puts forward higher requirements for photographers. It requires photographers to look at the world with an aesthetic heart and express the world with a pair of observational eyes in their daily shooting training.

Light has various manifestations, and the impact of light on photography is heavyweight.
