When I first started really learning how to shoot with my camera, I loved what is called flat light. This is the light on a cloudy day or that you find just at the edge of the shade, beautiful diffuse light that is easy to expose for. If you are trying to learn manual mode on your camera, flat light is your best friend, but it can also be completely boring.
As I’ve grown more confident with my camera, I almost dread those cloudy days that used to make me so happy. Once you start looking for interesting light, you will see that you can find it everywhere! Especially in these winter months, don’t be afraid to look for interesting types of light inside as well.
