Masters of LightUnderstanding light and how to manipulate it will result in beautiful Images
Photographers are often considered "Artists of Light". A professional photographer is a master of either manipulating light to suit their subject or manipulating their subject to suit the light. Understanding light and how to capture beautiful images with their chosen light source is crucial for any photographer. In portraiture, understanding light is key, as it will either flatter your subject or make them look horrible. (Think of those times you had a photo taken by a friend or family member and the light resembled that of holding a flashlight to your face - not very flattering at all. Now think of the time you looked in the mirror, with a light source from above - much more flattering).
Our understanding of light is what sets the good photographers apart from the great ones. So when you look at your potential photographer, look at their work. Are they consistently reproducing the same great results, or are their images "one-hit-wonders". Does the light suit the mood/theme of the image?
As photographers we need to understand the direction of light and how it affects our subjects, we have to know how different light temperatures affect our white balance and overall look and feel of our images and we have to be able to manipulate light, whether studio or natural, to get the result we want in an image.
So, while a beautiful image may appear to be taken haphazardly, there is a lot of calculation that goes into something as mundane as the light!
