Better lighting is not an accident, but it creates oportunities
This feature teaches about additive lighting to create shadows and shape. DJ LaDez photographed Brook in New Port Richey's Sims Park for these images and he sometimes does deliberate with and without images to show the effect of the Lumedyne lighting. With the Lumedyne flash, you can shoot in the middle of the day because it is bright enough to compete with daylight exposures. By using a large soft light from off camera, you can create wrap around lighting that looks natural and has fall off that still retains your diffused values (that's the Dean Collins word for shadow areas).
