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

From my point of view its not about reading the light but about a particular "look" your after in an image. my daughter wanted this type of look for her school grad photos next year so we went out for a play and achieved exactly what she was looking for.

I experimented for 6 months and built my lighting gear to get the look out of camera no PP.

If their is a certain look you want study the photographer and the shadows  and look where the light is coming from and the intensity and Practice untill you get what your looking for.
