Via. Tamara Lackey: Window light can be absolutely gorgeous, especially when it’s pouring in through a large picture window that just happens to be technically diffusing a soft light and delivering a softbox-quality effect. Much of what you do in a client’s home is figuring out what little “sets” you can create near the light you find; that is part of the fun of it, too.
This photo was captured during a photo shoot for Apple Park, an eco-friendly distributor. I really wanted this little guy and his caterpillar toy to pop. I lit him with soft window light and picked the white walls and carpet as a background to enhance the green in his onesie and toy.
