Hi!

I've seen here a lot of 'Post Your favorite ..." type topics, and didn't find one about portraits taken with 'classic' natural window light. Lets show the beauty of single, but very beautiful light that helps in taking stunning portraits without the need for ton of extra camera/lighting gear.

Post Your "window portraits" to let newbies know, that they do not need to go for "off camera hot shoe flash" or "prime lenes" or "creative edits" to get beautiful photographs.

Hey, you didn't say it had to be a human portrait. Here's my old girl illuminated only by window light.

Brian and Tim, really love both of yours! Great use of available light!

I always use windows on location for newborn sessions.

Sorry these are so small, just pulling them up from flickr.

GREAT windows in this house...
