24. Shoot an Indoor Portrait with Available Light


Generally speaking, the best photographs are shot using available light. The addition of a flash typically makes the subject look harsh and rough. Not a good idea when creating a portrait, where the goal is to capture your subject at her best. The only problem with using available light indoors is that there typically isn't much of it. In this task, I'll show you how to use what sunlight there is to your advantage, and how to supplement it with a soft, fill flash. If there simply isn't enough sunlight at your location indoors, you'll have to take the portrait using the flash as the main source of light. See 25 Shoot an Indoor Portrait with On-Camera Flash for help.
