tip 5: lighting

Written by Bex Lipp of Verdict Photos

This is one area that comes with practice (and I am still working on it myself).  Basically soft light is the best.  So, try and find spots around the home when that lovely buttery afternoon sun streams in and then get the kids playing there to capture a lovely light photo.
I love natural light and do not use any artificial lighting so far in my photography.  With natural lighting a lot of it comes down to timing and also the angles.  Lighting takes time to get a good understanding of, but give it a go ... one way to learn and that is, practice.  A photo using natural light can have amazing results.  Play around with the time of day that you take photos and see what you like. 
The middle of a sunny day isn’t actually the best time to take a photo, unless you are in a thick forest and want to get some amazing light shining down through the trees.  Overcast days are great for portraits as there are no harsh shadows and people don’t have to squint.  Light acts differently at different times of the day and also in different situations, so again, play around with your camera and you might be surprised at what you capture.
