Natural Light Photography Cheatsheet

Natural light photography uses sunlight to create stunning, authentic images. This technique is favored by portrait, landscape, and street photographers for its accessibility and organic results. Each lighting condition, from the golden hour to cloudy days, adds a unique character to photos. The golden hour, shortly after sunrise and before sunset, is especially prized for its warm, diffused light.

Understanding how light interacts with your subject and environment is key. Position subjects to avoid harsh shadows, and use reflectors or diffusers to soften light. Natural light photography enhances technical skills and encourages a deeper engagement with your surroundings.
