No flash or lighting equipment was allowed during this particular dog show but the overhead lights (ambient lighting) were more than enough for an 85mm lens maxed out at F1.8. I love these dogs….

Natural lighting from the sun is what was used for the photos below. The next time you are out taking photos in the daytime, try taking your photos in the shade for a softer look.
Using natural light (also known as ambient light) means no flash or special camera lighting was used.
