Dramatic Portraits Using Natural Light | Brett Florens

The next best thing to open doorways is indirect natural light coming through a window. The bigger the window, the better. This is going to give you soft, flattering, directional light that is a dream to work with. You can place your subject right up next to the window to shoot images with form and dimension.

settings: f1.4 @ 1/1600 iso 1250

Or, you could shoot with your back to thewindow and create an image with very flat lighting. It really is up to your personal preference. In all of these examples you could use a reflector to fill out unwanted shadows or create highlights where needed.

settings: f2.8 @ 1/320 iso 400
