3 Reasons why I enjoy taking photos with a spotlight

From many past experiences, lots of photographers out there put their camera gear down as soon as the light starts to fade and darkness begins to set in. When it comes to photography, most of us like to stick to our comfort zones and yes this is fine, but what if we want to better ourselves? How do we grow as photographers?
