What the title says basically.
taking advantage of available light.
I always have all my speedlights and other lighting gear with me; it's always available.
Shooting outdoor weddings it's important for me to make sure my images look good. By using my available light(s) I am better able to mimic natural light: the human eye can process a high-contrast scene (a sunny day with lots of harsh shadows) much better than the best CMOS sensor on the planet, no matter what the ISO. Bringing in additional lighting, in those situations, will look far better and more natural--how our brains see it-- than if I'd just shot with a really high ISO.
