Indoor locations can make natural light photography challenging, but it’s not impossible. Scout for locations around your house, taking note of which spots get the best natural light and at what time. As you would with any other portrait or landscape photography shoot, be sure to snap your shots at these times.
If the light is too low, or if you simply can’t find any decent light in your house, artificial lighting is your next best bet. From portable LED lighting kits to hot-shoe mounted flashguns, there are plenty of options to experiment with. For a tried-and-true option, consider using a flashgun with bounce flash: This will give you beautiful, diffused results that look almost like natural light.
Top Tip: A simple reflector can go a long way in helping you take advantage of available light, fill deep shadows, and illuminate faces.
