    • Some concepts of light quality tokeep in mind while searching forimages include: shadows that arestrong and dramatic or complexand confusing, light that is harshand revealing or soft andmysterious.
    • Reflected light often provides many wonderful surprises.Remember, when the sun is out it moves across the sky andilluminates from a different angle every minute of the day, dramatically changing the way something may look from dawn to dusk and from clear to overcast days.
    • Light can range fromdirect, diffused and soft Direct light will be high in contrast – shadows can appear almost black Diffused light is light from all sides of the subject – shadows can be weak or absent
    • "Shadow is a color as light is, but less brilliant; light and shadow are only therelation of two tones.“ Paul Cezanne
    • Shadows add meaning to animage. Without shadows theobject may appear plain andboring. Lights and shadowsestablish the correlation of oneobject to another and their placein the full scene. The position andstrength of the lights andshadows also set the generalmood of the subject.
