Photography challenge: lighting

I’ve always loved using natural light for photography. The effects change and it’s reasonably easy. I say reasonably because currently it’s winter and the best daylight hours are during my working time. Oh, and it’s cold to head outside. It makes it harder but not impossible.

My last apartment had perfect windows for photography. Big and facing west with a white dresser as a bright makeshift studio. This was shot there.

The photography challenge

While I love the photo I shot for this challenge, I can’t share it here. Sorry. My partner’s father visited on Sunday and the lighting was perfect and softened by the blinds. He’s older and while he consented to modelling, I’m not sure he understood. Not to worry, I have this photo of Octy instead. It’s still a subject in front of a window and using natural light. Just not as creative.
