    Default October 2011 - Window Light

    The level 2 assignment this month is window light. Shoot anything (portrait, pet, object) by window light.

    Although this may sound too easy for a level 2 assignment, it is not....if you make sure all elements (contrast, focus, sharpness, exposure) in the photo are working with the window light.

    Ok then who will post first?

    Thx! Marko

    Good start, theantiquer.

    Cin Cin on her playstand in the kitchen. She is faced towards a north facing window with the light falling on her. I am standing next to the window.
    Lens wide open at 1/60 of a second and 400 ISO. Because of the busy enviroment and just because I wanted to, there is a blur vignette added. She has a few pins on her head.

    I put a white border on the photo that does not show on this forum, so here it is in flickr lightbox:

    My first play with the concept of window light, using tripod and remote trigger.

    After reading the assignment again I feel I should remove this. I was trying to be a bit creative when I took it. But considering a third of the image is a blown out highlight and another third is black etc., I don't think it represents your explanation of the assignment as a challenge to achieve good exposure etc with window light. But I guess I'll just acknowledge that and leave it.

    I think you should leave it here. Good/Proper exposure can be a bit subjective. The bright blown area pointing down to the sleeping child (and mom?) is pretty cool and since the window is providing the main source of light I think it qualifies to be in the challenge.

    Natural light through a high overhead window. I cropped out the dead space above the flowers.

    Nice variety here everyone.
    Here's a shot of my cat Baci shot this morning as a twofer for this challenge and another challenge for a pet forum.
    - main lights are window light from the right and the front. Bounced fill was used on the left.
    Baci was not happy - but we promised him sardines.
