Photography Tips – Using Window Light

Window light is an excellent light source and you can achieve different looks with it just by changing the orientation of your subject to the window. In the video below I show you how you can create different lighting patterns with window light and how those patterns will affect your portraits. For example, if you have matured aged skin or acne, flat lighting would probably work best for you because it minimizes texture. If you have a round face, however, you might look best with short lighting. With short lighting, most of the face is in shadow, which tends to slim the face. If you have a narrow face, broad lighting could be a good choice for you because it tends to broaden the look of the face.

Check out the video below to see these concepts in action.
