LET NATURAL LIGHT DO ITS WORK
Personally, when I first got into photography, outdoor shooting was my favorite type of session. The best part about shooting outdoors is (you can probably guess) the natural light you have to work with. I was drawn to this type of shooting because I did not start out in a studio nor did I own a studio to practice using off-camera-flash. Can anyone else relate to this?
Another aspect of photography that I enjoyed was getting my image as perfect in camera as possible. Post processing wasn't necessarily something I looked forward to, and shooting in natural light enabled me to capture most of my images with perfect exposure. We will dive into the components around perfect exposure.
FORM OF NATURAL LIGHT INDOORS
Have you ever wondered why some photographers like to shoot during a cloudy day or when there is an overcast? You can achieve that same look when you're shooting indoors. You can have diffused light coming through a window, but not shining directly in. This will give you a gorgeous, soft and airy finish. Even though natural light does a lot of the work for you, you will still want to try out different options to achieve your perfect image.
LIGHTING IS PERFECT, NOW WHAT?
Let's say, you have perfect exposure and the light is exactly how you want it. What would you do next? Pay attention to your composition and ensure it is the background that you want. Framing is just as important when it comes to your overall image. Once you've taken these things things into consideration, you will be on your way to shooting beautiful images indoors while using natural light. Happy shooting!
