Focus on Photography

Question 5
Light Sources

Light sources are divided into two major categories,

  1. natural
    • Sunlight
    • Moonlight
    • Reflected daylight

  2. artificial.
    • Flash
    • Studio Lights
    • Lamps

Note that natural light is not necessarily outdoor, nor is artificial light exclusively indoor. Some of the best outdoor shots use flash to "fill" harsh shadows, while an indoor scene may rely entirely on filtered window light.
