Photographic art: Light

We artists who work with graphic arts have a challenge: the range of light intensities we can depict is far less than the range we see with our eyes. This means we look for ways to create the illusion of a light range we don't have. How do we show beautiful natural-looking light? Jan Vermeer and Ansel Adams figured this out, as have others. We can do our best, too.
