Harsh light… Low light… SCARY?

I recently took a photography class through the Define School called Movement and Light.  It was so good, and I can say that I certainly grew as a photographer.  I began the class with a generally nervous attitude about shooting in low light, especially indoors, and harsh, midday light.  However, I pushed myself to shoot in this light over the past few weeks.  I loved it and can sincerely say that I no longer find these lights scary.  I want to embrace the shadows and find pockets of light.  I will celebrate bright, sunny days and not worry so much about raccoon eyes.  I am looking forward to this journey!  So, here is a little tidbit of images I took and submitted.  Enjoy!
