P52 – A Study of Light {Directional Light}

We've got some more directional light this week, also from a window. This time, however, I closed all the windows in this room and only slightly cracked open one to the front-left of my boy (left of the bed in the pictures).  The fun thing about window light is the strong fall-off. The light really close to the window is very strong but it gets dark very quickly. This is called the Inverse Square Law for those photography theory nerds. :) It works really well to isolate the subject in a busy setting (like a cluttered bedroom). While he's nice and bright, all the clutter behind him is in the shadows (and out of focus).
