Window light

Still-Life-1

Window light has been a favorite among artists for many centuries. An artist with a studio that had a north-facing window was considered very fortunate indeed. The light is generally soft and with a shade or reflector can be controlled to a large degree. My experience has been that a reflector is essential for photographers as the light falls off precipitously as you move away from the window. An artist’s eye can accommodate for this drop off a lot easier than a camera can.
