Lighting is incredibly important in photography and can really make or break an image. There are a lot of artificial lighting options, but natural light is a great source and one that we use frequently in our own photography studio. Bonus? It's free!
Natural light works well for showcasing your candles, soap, and other products that will live in a customer’s home; it provides the same look and feel they will experience with the actual products in their home environment.
What is 'natural light'?
In photography, natural lighting is the light source from the sun. When used correctly, it gives an even, soft-looking light with gentle shadows.
Where to find it?
Natural light can be found anywhere the sunlight reaches, but these are a few of the most common places to look for photography-friendly lighting:
1. Near a window
2. On a covered porch
3. Any shaded area outside
