The Available light source, before moving much into the varieties of Ambient light, it becomes necessary to give a general introduction on how the brilliant use of ambient(available) light can enhance your photography. Here the brightness or the direction of light is almost impossible to adjust and it becomes the role of the photographer to adjust himself according to the orientation of lighting. Most often, Photographers find it difficult to shoot with the available light, they wish to shoot against the light and to achieve this using reflectors or shades whenever necessary.

For studio setups, ambient light is often considered relative to the additional fill light, hence ambiance light is assumed to behave like a key light.
