P52 – A Study of Light {Diffused Light}

The last week of diffused light.

1. Outside on an overcast day. I heard that flat light is supposedly good for portraits so I wanted to try one of my kids. For this shot, I also tried framing her with the design of the quilt.

2. Inside with diffused morning light coming through the windows.

P52 – A Study of Light {Diffuse Light}

Yep, still playing around with diffused light. I am really missing dramatic light right about now. But, I did find some shots this week that I'm especially proud to share. First off is my girl in a box, because how else does anyone watch cartoons?

Hey! I'm learning to braid hair!!! Here's my first ever french braid on my girl, and yes, it did fall out about 30 minutes later. :)

And now to the diffused light. As you might be able to tell, we have four rooms pouring light into our hallway but the light is always diffused, either from glazed windows to the windows themselves being around a corner and across the room. But, even so, the hallway is always a nice source of bright light. Here we are making a fort tunnel.

 

P52 – A Study of Light {Directional}

In addition to illuminating a subject, light can be used to create interest. Continuing this week's focus on directional light, I looked around our home for some softer light to play with. The kids and I finally found some in our bathroom. Too bad it's such an unsafe place for kids to play because the light there is always gorgeous! :) Here is us having some fun with the shower curtain as afternoon light pours in the window.
