THE PROBLEM WITH HARSH LIGHT:
Sometimes we think, "the more light, the better," however, the full sun causes some issues:
It’s okay to find the shadows! Look for soft, diffused light to soften the face. If you really want that sunny glow, you can add in a sun glare during the editing process.

I use a combination of two light sources for indoor photography:
SOFTBOXES & NATURAL LIGHT.
Day 1: Christmas Tree
Use what you learned about light and get a photo of a Christmas tree.
- Outdoor Christmas tree farm
- Use window light to photograph your indoor tree
- Photograph your kids by the tree and the window
Just be creative and USE YOUR LIGHT!
