Tip of the Day – Indoors Lighting

Indoor shots can look great, just as long as your subject receives enough light. Face them towards a light source – a large window, sliding glass door or skylight – rather than facing them into a room. As long as the day outside is relatively bright (around midday is often best for indoor-only shoots) there should be enough light to give some nice catchlights in the eyes.
This image of cute little Elsa was taken at our pet photography retreat Barkelona in Spain, where we practiced finding the best light during a midday shoot.
