- Artificial Light - Artificial Light is any light source that is not naturally occurring. Artificial Light includes things like flash/strobes, of course, but also any street lights, indoor lighting, or other man-made light sources.
This is often confused with "Ambient Light", which can, in fact, include man-made light sources.
Technically speaking, the only sources of light that can be considered totally not "artificial" are sunlight, moonlight, and starlight.
Some photographers may consider using a reflector to modify a natural light source can still be considered natural light.
