Modern photography is an evolving, exciting, and intimidating hobby that is largely treated as a convenience. It's much easier to fire off some flash shots than it is to manipulate a scene in a truly pleasing way. To make things more difficult, in addition to a great eye for situation and concept, photographers also need powerful computers, imaging software, and some degree of technological expertise - all in addition to the gear inside their camera bags.

This is a very specific software solution that some photographers have used to harness a difficult variable: uncontrollable light.
