My #1 Indoor Lighting Secret: Find Rooms with Natural Light!

My #1 biggest tip when photographing your kids indoors is finding the rooms with the best natural light. By natural light, I mean the light that is coming in from the outside and filtering in your room – likely through a window. You want to have ONE light source when you take photos of your family inside and natural is the way to go. Turn off your overhead lights and lamps. Artificial light results in weird shadows and an unnatural yellow tint over everything, which makes your entire picture appear yellow. Make sure your blinds and shades are open. This allows all of the natural light to take over in your room!

Natural light helps you to capture those beautiful skin tones and even light on your subject. 

Seriously, one of the most beneficial things you can do for your iPhone photos is turn off all the artificial lights around you (lamps, ceiling lights, etc.).Start using only natural window light whenever it’s available and you will automatically see a HUGE improvement in your images.

Having a good understanding of light and how to use it to your advantage will transform your photos, regardless of whether you’re using a smartphone or a fancy camera. I know this might seem simple but it’s my favorite indoor lighting secret – helping me create beautiful images no matter where I am!
