There is no bad light. There is spectacular light and difficult light. It’s up to you to use the light you have. It won’t always be spectacular and sometimes you may not get much light at all. Use whatever light you find. It may not be inspiring or wonderful. You work with the hand you’re dealt.

I used to be big into 500px and I listened to the podcast where the head honcho critiqued the photos of contributors. Only nearly every photo he said it needed to be shot at a different time of day.
It must be nice to have the leisure to shoot only at the perfect times of day and on the perfect days. I don’t have that. I like Maisel’s approach better.
