A good photographer must understand the light. Even when you shoot in natural light with no lighting equipment what so ever, you still should not just point and shoot. A trained eye will quickly identify the lighting possibilities provided by the surrounding environment. In this photo by Erika Gerdemark the darker forest behind the photographer will block some light, while the ocean in the background will reflect some light. Erika is also playing with the light by using the models them self. By letting some light slip over the grooms shoulder and light up the eye of the bride, Erika adds that extra magic and makes this scene exceptionally beautiful.
