A Simple Guide to Indoor Photography - free download!
I've been asking a lot of questions via Instagram lately about what area of photography my followers find most difficult, and overwhelmingly the feedback has been that they find taking pictures indoors really tricky. Whether it's the lack of available light, not knowing the right camera settings, or struggling with moving subjects and blurry images it seems that capturing our daily lives at home is something so many of you want to do but just aren't sure how to do it properly.
Much of what I do as a lifestyle photographer of families and creatives involves shooting indoors, and as a result I have had to learn how to work in even the most difficult of situations. Occasionally I am presented with the most beautiful home or studio, with large windows and plenty of white walls to bounce light all around a room, but mostly what I have to contend with (in my own home as well) is the reality of our small city flats, cluttered surfaces and children who won't sit still. Part of the magic is learning to embrace what initially seem like limitations, but another part is of course understanding how to work within them to get the results you're looking for. But don't worry, because I am here to help you...
I wanted to create a free resource for you that can help you look at indoor photography in a different way. Instead of focusing on the constraints, I want to encourage you to change your perspective and start using light as your subject. Pay attention to it, if you haven't before, get to know your space and how the light changes throughout the day and throughout the year. Get creative with your composition, utilise windows and pockets of sunlight to create beautiful, memorable images of yourself, your home and your family.
