Re: What exactly does "reading the light" mean?

I'm not saying that I'm any kind of genious photographer but I believe that in the last few years I've gotten much better and I attribute much of that to having more sensitivity to the quality of light that I'm seeing. The most interesting subject isn't likely to make a great photograph if the light isn't enhancing it. Conversely, even the most ordinary subject can be trasformed into something magical if it's hit by light in just the right way. A lot of what photography is involves noticing these things...
