One of the most effective pieces of lighting gear ever invented is available to almost every photographer in the world… unless you’re living in a cave (and even then you might have one).
It’s the window.
Here is a collection of natural light portraits. They were all taken predominantly with natural light – in most cases at or near a window. Enjoy.
I hear many photographers asking about what lighting gear to purchase to light their portraits – but I’m a firm believer that the natural light provided by a window can often do the job as well – if not better – than any expensive gear that you might buy.
