Light is the main ingredient in any photograph. Without light, you cannot make an image. Photography is all about drawing or painting with light.

Most of the time, we don’t really think about light in our day to day lives.

As a photographer however, light is your currency. Without it, you cannot create an image. If you were in a lightproof room, with no light entering the room at all, it would be nearly impossible to make a photograph.
