In your studio, you have complete control over the environment. When you venture out for a shoot, you relinquish some of that control to capture more natural moments. Whether you’re looking to photograph picture-perfect moments with friends or just some appealing landscapes, you need to be prepared to adapt to the existing lighting. This ability is crucial for any photographer, regardless of the quality of the camera.
Each time of day offers different levels of contrast and saturation, which greatly affect the kind of photos your camera will produce. The time frames with the most impact on lighting are sunrise and sunset (otherwise known as the Golden Hour), morning and evening, and midday.
