I my photographs I always aim for using natural lighting. It creates a better effect than flash photography. I tend to use sunlight as a source for lighting, or flame/dim light bulbs when doing face close ups.
Tip for photographers: some of you may understand this, but timing and knowing when during a certain season, the sun comes up or down will help you on time and lighting resources. For example, if you want to do a photo shoot with a model, it's important to know what month it is, what daylight savings time it is (autumn or spring) and how long the periods of sunset colors are. The first ten minutes of a sunset are perfect for lighting effects. They create a glow on the model, without washing out her face. If it is 4:30 pm in April, you may want to get your perfect photo before 4:50, as the sun's colors are now an orange hue and will leave the model squinting in the sun (unless it's a sunglasses shoot of course), having the subject or model with their back towards the sunset can create almost a silhouette effect, sometimes not always a good thing. Having the model directly in front of the shot, with you in the middle creates a picture with your hands/camera shadowing the model in some cases. So study your sunset/sunrise times in the weather section of the paper or study in certain season when the sun is going down at 3:30 in the afternoon or 7:30 in the evening.
