Using Natural Light Indoors

When taking a photo indoors, it can be quite challenging getting the light distributed correctly. The first thing you want to look for is a large widow where natural light is coming in.  It is one thing to find the window, but to have the correct angle takes practice. You will want to place the subject as close to the window as possible to insure the best quality of light. In other words the exposure level and sharpness. For a full face portrait and the subject looking straight into the camera. You want the camera position to be parallel to the window, to create a 45 degree lighting pattern. For a more dramatic look, move the camera away from the window, and into the room. This maintains shadow on the face.
