Day 3: Enjoy the light.
When you find a subject or subjects get in move around, working the light. For some situations sunny days work great but try getting out and photographing in the shadow as the sun hits overhead. Bad weather can work for great images too. Rain and overcast days will soften out shadows and add much appreciated detail. I especially enjoy woking in shadowy forests using the play of light on sun dappled understory to my advantage.
For this image, I moved around until I had a dark forest background and just one lone flower in the much brighter highlights of the sun lighting it up. This is the kind of lighting that adds impact to an image and reminds me of stage lighting where only one performer is lite up, focusing everyones attention on them.
