Remark: The class took place in a rainy day; there wasn't any strong natural light near window when we took the croissant and pastry photo. These photos were illuminated by an off-camera flash that replicated natural light.

If the class happened in a rainy day, attendees would learn how to make artificial light from the flash look just like natural light. In a sunny day, we will use light modifiers to soften harsh natural light.
