Today's tip: See the light!

2) The direction of light.
3) The quality of light.
4) The color of light.
We need see the light, we can better determine:
1) The best in-camera exposure.
2) If we need to control the light (with a flash, diffuser or reflector).
3) How much digital darkroom work may be needed.
