Pained | Light Test

Pained | Self-Portrait Test  Pained | Self-Portrait Light Test

Some very informal practice and testing this morning.  Window light is always (and quite rightfully) touted as the best light.  It’s soft, it’s free, and as it comes directly from the big star in the sky, it’s eco-friendly and sustainable!  It’s also considered widely available, though when the when the window in your working area is at the bottom of a hole (window-well), and you’re too shy to wander upstairs or outside, that last part isn’t so true.

This was taken as close to the window as I could get while nearly facing it, with the camera and 55mm lens as far in front as my little arms could reach.  Definitely not enough room to use a longer lens if facing the window, let alone get more then a thin frame of a face.  Perhaps I can get something to work by standing next to it, though from the bottom photo, you can see that a LOT of light is lost.

I’ll need to work up the courage to venture upstairs where there’s plenty of light, it seems…

Any tips for overcoming shyness when standing before the camera in places other folks might be passing by?  The thought’s enough to keep me hiding in a dark hole, evidently!

To practice, experimentation, and to hopefully finding the courage to face the sunlight..!

Much Peace and Keep Roamin’
