The Enigma of Capturing Light
Written by Nasrul Eam
It is light that colors our vision, our understanding, and allows us to feel the essence of our surroundings. We are able to capture all this through the lens, with the aid of light, into the medium of photography.
“Light makes photography. Embrace light. Admire it. Love it. But above all, know light. Know it for all you are worth, and you will know the key to photography.” The famous quote by George Eastman, which every photographer must know by heart before stepping into this world of this visual language.
Light has many mysteries. With its colors, directions, and qualities, it can produce well-defined details, halftones, and shadows in your captured photographs. We will unfold those mysteries of capturing light in this guide, especially when the lights are brilliant as well as when you have to photograph in bad lighting conditions, which every photographer experiences at some point.
