Window Light to the Rescue

In the northern hemisphere, we're entering winter when outside conditions may make photographing nature unpleasant. But that doesn't mean you should pack your camera up and wait for spring. Instead, investigate how window light can help you photograph nearly any subject.

All you need is a window (or door) with indirect light illuminating your subject. Window light is directional, revealing shape and texture, like that in the old cowboy hat above. Exposure times tend to be longer in this lighting situation, so using a tripod is helpful for a sharp shot without raising the ISO.
