In this short video by Ed Verosky he covers three rules about the behaviour of light. When you understand these principles you can then use them better in your photography.
- Light travels in straight lines
- The subject receives less light as the distance to the light source is increased
- The larger the light source relative to the subject, the softer the light source

So what does that mean for your photography? How can you use this information in practice?
