Every type of light – hard, soft, damp, wet – has a suitable photographic subject and situation.
The point is – is the light you have appropriate for the picture you are making?
When thinking about making a picture I consider the time and place to get the light that I need for the picture I am making.
Pictures are made – (thought about and planned), not just taken.
The picture above – Bath Abbey Courtyard 16th Feb 2014 – late afternoon.
