Windows are valuable assets when shooting photos indoors. Often rooms are poorly lit – but shooting against a window gives more than enough light for a proper exposure. You can use the light to partially light your subject – or you can use that light to shoot part of your subject and capture their reflection. I don’t do this often enough, but I love the result. Especially when they’re really concentrating on something (like watching someone make chocolate at the chocolate factory tour – or a throwback to when Hallie was a little one watching the mailman come and go!)
Reflections are another way to creatively tell the story of your kid’s childhood. Try it. Practice it. You’ll end up loving it.
