Creating mood and atmosphere: Light has the ability to influence the perception of emotion and atmosphere in a picture. In a properly lit scene, such as the soft light of a sunset, a romantic mood can be sharpened, while in an intensely lit and contrasting scene, tension and drama can be created. By precisely manipulating the direction, intensity and temperature of light, the photographer can create a variety of emotions and expressions.

Emphasize detail and form:
By using the right light sources and light direction, a photographer can highlight important details, textures and forms of objects. Light can model the three-dimensionality of objects, which gives the image depth and clarity.

To evoke a particular mood in a scene: In film photography, the right light setting helps build the right atmosphere in a scene. For example, soft light can add romance and subtlety, while hard light can give a scene a raw and realistic feel.

Contrast control: Correct light alignment controls the contrast between light and dark areas in an image. Adequate contrast is key to achieving tonal balance, making the image more legible and aesthetically pleasing.

Eliminate unwanted effects and shadows: The cooperation of different light sources can eliminate unwanted effects, such as too strong shadows or underexposed areas. The right light can also hide certain defects in objects or models.

Highlighting and separation of objects from the background: Light can help separate the main objects from the background, so you can focus the viewer's attention on the key elements of the composition.

Creating special effects: Proper manipulation of light allows the creation of a variety of special effects, such as backlighting, reflections, bokeh effects and background modeling.
