Large windows - a stylistic device in portrait photography - for background design, as a light source, as a frame

Large windows in portrait photography can result in beautiful and atmospheric images. Here are a few points to keep in mind to get the most out of this natural light source:

  • Use natural light: Large windows provide excellent natural light for portraiture. The soft, even light falling through the window creates soft shadows and naturally illuminates the model. Experiment with different times of day to achieve different lighting moods.
  • Positioning of the model: Place the model close to the window to get the best use of the light. Make sure the model's face is oriented towards the window to cast an even and flattering light on the face. You can also experiment with different lighting effects by moving the model.
  • Use reflectors or brighteners: When using large windows, one side of the face may be lighter than the other. To get an even light on the face, reflectors or illuminators can be used to bounce the light back onto the model and brighten shadows.
  • Background composition: Use the background visible through the window to create interesting compositions. Depending on the environment and the time of day, you can include a variety of backgrounds, such as nature views or urban landscapes, in your shots.
  • Controlling Exposure: Since natural light through the window can vary, it is important to adjust exposure accordingly. Make sure the model is well exposed and regularly check your camera's exposure settings to ensure the image is neither over- nor underexposed.
  • Using windows as frames: Another interesting aspect of including large windows in portrait photography is the ability to use the window as a frame for the model. By placing the model in front of the window and framing the composition accordingly, you can create additional visual depth and add some dynamism to the image.
  • Capturing reflections and highlights: Large windows also offer a chance to use reflections and highlights in your shots. This can be, for example, the play of light on a glass surface, or capturing reflections in the window itself. These elements can add interest and a touch of sophistication to the image.
  • Experiment with different perspectives: Take advantage of the many possibilities that large windows offer to experiment with different perspectives. Try different angles by positioning yourself either in front of or behind the model. By playing with different angles you can create unique and dynamic images.
  • Mind the backlight: When using large windows as a light source, you should also consider the effect on the background. Depending on how the light falls through the window, there may be some backlighting. Use this opportunity to create an interesting atmosphere and emphasize the background.

The inclusion of large windows in portrait photography offers a wonderful way to create natural and atmospheric images. By positioning the model correctly, using natural light and experimenting with light and shadow, you can create fascinating portraits with a unique atmosphere and a touch of naturalness. Be creative and be inspired by the possibilities that the large windows offer you.
