1. Take advantage of the window
When talking about indoor photography techniques, natural light coming from outside the room is not easy to obtain. But this is where we can use windows as a light transmitter. Because the natural light effects are smoother and automatically beautify our subject more than flash light from the camera.
2. Avoid overhead lighting!
Overhead lighting or a light source above the head can dramatically worsen your picture, you know! In indoor photography, the source of light from the top of the subject adds to the shadows that are not pleasing to the eye. Therefore, the overhead lighting is stubborn by backing the subject one step backwards, so the overhead lighting will bounce to the floor and then to the subject. The result is that the light reflection maximizes your photo results, anyway!
3. Tripod is your best friend
As with outdoor photography, indoor photography can also win a lot thanks to the use of tripods. The reason besides being able to make the camera more stable, you can also anticipate less good lighting with further exposure. After all, who wants to miss out on frames when family photos? With a tripod, you can join your subject in the camera frame!
4. Use a reflector
Again the tricky thing in indoor photography techniques is the lack of light that supports the subject. Therefore, many photographers prefer the help of a reflector when doing indoor photography. The function of the reflector is to reflect light towards the subject so that it softens the shadow. Definitely don’t want it, right? If the subject is only human, it is clearly seen as an imperfection? If you don’t have a reflector, you have anything with a plain white surface instead.
5. Adjust the light source
Indoor photography activities that take place inside the house have many possible sources of light. But be careful, in the context of light, more does not mean better. With the window open and the lights on, natural and artificial light that hit the subject mixed up and the results became more difficult to process white balance. Because that is important for photographers to adjust which light is the main source.
