Can the light really suck? Is there such a thing as bad light? What makes light suck: midday sun or dark overcast skies?
It was said by someone that ‘there is no such thing as bad light, only light used improperly’.
For outdoor photographers, light is often not what we want in the moment. It can be over cast when we want sun or a cloudless sky when we want softer light.
There is no perfect light that works for every situation and for every subject, but no matter the light conditions, none of this light should be considered bad. Instead, poor light should be looked at as an opportunity to find subjects that work in the light of the moment.
