11. Indoor photography Part 2

In this portrait photography class Karl finds a way to work even in bad weather. He heads indoors, where he shows you a number of essential requirements for taking fantastic portraiture shots.

Shooting inside can often mean working in small spaces with limited light, which is why it’s important to remember three simple things. In this photography class Karl explains each of these important elements and how to bring them together to take a good portrait.

Using the available light, he shows you how to work in any weather and how to make the most of less than ideal shooting conditions.

In this photography class we cover the following:

  • Portrait photography: How to photograph indoors
  • Natural light photography tips
  • How to use natural light for indoor portraits
  • Posing your subject
  • How to photograph in small spaces

  1. I noticed on the photo at 2:55 you went from F1.4 , 1/160, 320 iso …. to F1.8 , 1/125, 500 iso at photo 3:13 and 3:34. Was curious what the reasons were for the adjustments when you are shooting in the same exact spot? The exposures on all 3 of those images look same to me?

    1. Hi Paul, the actual exposures would be about equivalent because the change in aperture is balanced out by the change in shutter speed or ISO accordingly. There was also shifts in the changing of the light from the outside so sometimes exposure changes are made for those reasons but most likely I wanted to get from 1.4 to 1.8 because I felt that the depth of field was too shallow for a hand held shot and may have resulted in a soft focus.
