- Choose a window that is large and not blocked by other buildings, large trees, furniture indoors, etc.
- At certain times of the day, light coming in through a window will be too bright to place the subject right next to the window. Watch for the sun to cast a big, bright square of light onto the floor - I usually try to avoid placing the subject inside that square. The sun is just too harsh there. Does that make sense?
This first photo was taken with the above setup, but I did not use a reflector. I often prefer this type of lighting. It is directional, and it provides the image with a good range of highlights, shadows, and depth.
The second photo was taken with the same setup, but this time I used a reflector. Notice that the shadowed side of her face is now filled in with light.
So, it can be pretty simple to get good shots when you're using natural light indoors. Just remember to keep the subject fairly close to the window, and watch where the light is falling. Reposition the subject until the light is flattering and the areas of the face that you want illuminated are well lit.
