This week's assignment was to shoot some pictures indoors, making use of natural lighting as much as possible. These pictures are straight out of the camera, with no editing.
I actually set up a large white paperboard on the other side of my animals, which helped a lot in increasing the light. It reflected a lot of the natural light back at my subjects, lighting up their darker sides nicely.
Also, by making sure my focus was on my subjects, my camera adjusted the light for them, rather than for the bright window they were next to.
It helped that it was a very sunny day, with a lot of natural light coming inside. Also, my windows have white tissue paper over them (otherwise everyone could see right inside), which I think helped both increase the amount of good, clear light and also prevented sun glares.
I even had enough light to get a decent moving picture. Normally, this is one of the hardest things to do inside, because movement will blur without enough light. I'm sure I couldn't get this decent of a picture of the dogs wrestling inside, but for a good bit of minor movement, it worked.
