A Camera Captures Light

No light, no photo

Bad light, bad photo

Look at any photography studio and what do you see? Lights!

Go on a Hollywood set and what do you hear? Lights! Camera! Action!

I'll be very frank with you: I and countless others have told aspiring photographers this very thing for many, many years. Most people ignore the advice and think they just need a better camera or lens. The world's best camera and the world's best lens cannot fix bad lighting. But if you spend $4,000 and your photos stink, you'll feel humiliated enough to learn about lighting and then you'll shoot well-lit photos.

Yes, you can save $4,000 if you just listen to what all these experienced photographers are telling you: It's about light first. Then all the other stuff.
