As I have seen suggested several times here, I have had good luck in the past with shooting babies in window light alone - specifically morning light in my case, because the afternoon sun here is pretty glaring and evening is too late and doesn't last as long. I had some good results shooting with a dark background while hanging some white sheets off-camera to bounce the light around and minimize shadows, but it was pretty randome and not scientific at all. I'd basically like more information on working with natural window light. And what can you use to reflect the light in someone else's home? Assuming this is work done in a home rather than a studio - are there any rough guidelines or is this pretty much a a trial and error thing? Thanks in advance for any advice. By way of illustration - these were done with the white sheet around them: with my old camera: Contender for fattest baby EVAH: And these were done just with direct window light, obviously.
