Accidental Light

Have you ever taken a shot and then when you looked at what you took, you see that the sun hit the subject in just the right way to give shot an extra layer of meaning? And you didn't even mean to do that?

I love it when that happens.

Yes! I've made children look like angels through perfect (unplanned) lighting. The parents usually adore those shots. I've tried to replicate it, but the finished result never looks as good as it does when it occurs naturally.

It's magic when it happens, isn't it? I've gotten some amazing action shots right at sunset because the sun and the clouds synced perfectly with the snowboarder.

This NEVER happens to me. I'm beyond jealous. Is there a certain time of day that I should try it? I know it's an accidental shot, but maybe my odds will increase during certain hours of the day? Help!
