I was wondering how we perceive and understand light, and the use of light, since it's the back-bone of photography.
I came across this site: http://www.sararemington.net/book1.html and her works are simply astounding.
So subtle, serene and yet dynamic enough to entice the viewer to want to see more...
Have a look at:

In her description, natural light is mentioned. But look at the amount of control she has! Do you think she used other (artificial) sources as well? What kind of reflectors is she using...the quality of light looks different than most of the reflector shots I see. Was a lot of post production work done?
How do you think she did those shots?
