Window Light Portraits: Weekly Photography Challenge

Article from Digital Photography School

During the week we posted a simple exercise here on dPS to practice working with Natural Light (from a window) when taking portraits.

Today we thought it might be fun to make the exercise this weeks photographic challenge as it’s both simple to do and something that has the potential to teach you a lot (and all you really need to do it is a camera and a window (or even a door would do).

Read the exercise here and then get to taking some window lit portraits!

Once you’ve taken your ‘Window Light Portrait’ image and have upload it to your favourite photo sharing site either share a link to it or – embed it in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSWINDOW to help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the images posted in our last challenge – Sunlight challenge where there were some great images submitted.
