Gotta Love A Big Window

Love this photo of my niece. She’s so sweet and I just want to kiss that face. Seated in a restaurant on an overcast day, soft light poured in the large window to the right. As she conversed with her mom and dad, I shot at a wide F/3.5 aperture setting with the vibration compensation turned on to accommodate the slow 1/25th sec shutter speed. Only when her face was turned slightly towards the window did I get that twinkle in her eyes. Tip: Look for north facing window and position your subject’s cheek toward the window. You’ll get nice side lighting that gives dimension to the face and highlights in the eyes.

  1. Hi Stacie, I really like the idea of your blog. I am looking forward to more posts. I can’t wait to try out this tip. I did this by accident not so long ago. Now I know why those pictures came out pretty good! Who knew?!
