Natural Light Portraiture

Maggie And Anne

I stopped by to visit one of my aunts (Margaret left) and another aunt (Anne right) was visiting her.  My Dad had five sisters and I haven’t kept touch with all of them really well. It was the first time that I’d seen Aunt Anne in a good number of years and I knew that I had to take a picture of both of them. There was a lovely soft light coming in from the north windows. Instead of lining them up outside, I had them sit together in that great light. There was enough ambient light in the room to keep the side lighting from throwing the faces into darkness.

A few seconds of examining the available light can help turn snapshots into portraits.

In the best light…
