Using Window Light

how to window light

Window light is by far my favorite kind of light to photograph with. It’s the only kind of light I use when I photograph newborns. It’s just so lovely. When you use it correctly you can make your subject look fabulous! And who doesn’t want to look fabulous? The trick is to put your subject in front of the window about three feet away and at a 45 degree angle. If you want, you can even pop in a reflector to soften up the shadows on the other side. Simple as that! Who knew it could be so easy?
