Window Light – and more!

Last week I shot in the studio for a second time with my friend, Katie. Some of the images were with window light, such as the first photograph, above. By the way, click on any image to see it LARGER and clearer.  Window light can be beautiful – and has a quality that just can’t be reproduced with artificial lights. 

In this closeup shot, I asked Katie to look right into one of the studio lights. I used a very narrow depth of field. Note that her left eye (right as we view it) and her lips are in sharp focus but most of the rest of the image is soft.  This matches our perception when we look at someone – often our focus/attention is just on parts of a face. 

This photograph is shot in a typical fashion lighting setup, with pretty even lighting all around, but with the main light coming from the right. 

With some of the images, I converted to black and white.  In this one, we have nice, soft window light coming from the left side.

Katie is a joy to work with – I told her we make a great team!

Window Light with Christina

Please click on each picture in this article – the images will show BIGGER and sharper.

I’m continuing with my personal photography project to shoot one person, Christina, over a period of 10 weeks. If you missed any of the earlier blog posts, see the three listed just to the right under “Recent Articles,” all with titles ending in “Christina.”

This week, we shot in a modern building with a lot of window light. The quality of window light is hard to replicate in the studio.  It provides a very flattering look and if the subject is placed close to the window, the light can wrap around her in a lovely way.

Christina has been joy to work with. Stay tuned for more images – we’ll be going to outside locations, now that the weather here in Connecticut is finally looking and feeling like Spring!

Yesterday, I put up pictures of Maisie’s brother, Leo. If you didn’t see them, click here. Maisie is my grand niece – my nephew’s daughter, also my late brother Sam’s granddaughter. And she is as sweet as sweet can be!

OK, I admit, I put her up to this pose above – she was very well behaved and patient with me during the shoot. This is one amazing 5-year-old.

And, as you can see, she can do serious as well. These pictures were taken just with window light. I can’t wait to see you again, dear Maisie!
