I recently did a whole story on my Instagram regarding lighting, but I felt this topic was important enough to also do a blog post that could be easily referenced.

I do not add presets, filters, extra artificial lighting, photoshop, none of these. I take all my photos on my Iphone 12 and at MOST increase the exposure on an image if its a gloomy day.
