Move into the light

NPhoto - - Contents -

Light from a large win­dow is great, es­pe­cially when it’s over­cast out­side. A cloudy day dif­fuses the light, which is per­fect as it pro­duces soft shad­ows, whereas bright, di­rect sun­light will in­tro­duce hard, harsh shad­ows. It’s hard to bal­ance the ex­po­sure in di­rect sun­light, too, with deep shad­ows and bright high­lights push­ing the ex­tremes of the dy­namic range. We used mount­board as a re­flec­tor; it’s great for bounc­ing light back into your sub­ject. You can use one, two or even more, depend­ing on your re­quire­ments.
