Natural Light Indoors
(Use window light!)
The only thing that changed was the position of the photographer.
2. Let the light hit you & your subject from the side (side light can be really pretty & have a dramatic effect!)
3. If you don’t have good window light, you can “cheat” by opening a door just for the photo & letting it in! (if the temperature outside isn’t freezing ;) I’ve also been known to have my kids step out onto the porch for a photo because the light is better!
1. Sun is high & bright- this light is tricky because it can cause dark shadows under eyes, and makes it hard for people to keep their eyes open! Trees overhead can make weird, speckled shadows on faces. Solid, open shade is your friend on a day like this!
2. Overcast- perfect day for photos! No bright sun to fight with- you can take pictures anywhere outside.
