Week 5 – Natural Light // 2014 52 Week Photo Challenge // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

Week 5 : Natural Light

This week’s challenge also turned into a “self-portrait” challenge, mostly because I don’t have subjects on call and my boyfriend is out of town for a few weeks with work.

I shot these in my living room.  I opened up the blinds and the front door to let in extra light.  I did use a reflector, so I kind of cheated a little bit.  But without it the shadows were too harsh.

I’d love to hear some suggestions on how to take better natural light self-portraits indoors.  I really struggled with these… I think I struggle the most with shooting myself.  I much prefer to be behind the camera than in front of it ;)

Take a look:
