Most of my shots are taken in the evening just before the sun says bye bye. I love natural light. I try to place my subjects in positions where the background does not receive much of light. So that there is a contrast between the subject and the background. Also, I look around for bounced light which might create interesting results. Sometime making some one stand close to a light colored wall really makes up for the fill light, but at the same time I might try and avoid the wall in my shot. I think it's all about being creatively independent of the limitations that exist around you, if that makes any sense!
In this shot, the amount of light is multiplied many times, due to the mirror and it acts acts a natural fill agent and at the same time, became a good tool to help me compose the image. So what it really is, is nothing but using whatever is around you in a creative manner to yield results that appeal to your eyes.

Here is one of the shot where I was playing with my 55-250 lense. The shot was taken at 250mm and 3 feet away from the subject.

Anyways, since we are talking light, I had an opportunity to use flash through a softbox for a recent macro shoot and here's the result. It was a hand held shot and at about 1:2 magnification (cropped to make the bee fill the frame).

Lots of nice portraits..,
Portraits are not my forte, I rarely take them. But here is an old one with strange lighting.

The sunset one looks really good! Would it look better if the sea was also reddish?
