I've always tried to convey honesty and realism, especially in my personal work. And that would particularly apply to my use of light. I think that it all stems from an "appreciation" of light. Many times, I can be walking or driving along and all of a sudden stop and say, "Wow, look at the light!". I don't believe that you can teach one to have that feeling. Maybe it's passion, I'm not sure. But, the quality of light that attracts me is as diverse as the subjects I shoot. Dawn, dusk, hot, shadow,overcast, misty, foggy, rainy, reflective, ambient, mixed ...all have their moments, that in combination with the right subject, offer up many possibilities. And if I'm ready and open to that moment, then I am probably taking pictures.
