Making use of natural light - photographing a Room

Lighting a room with natural daylight can be very beautiful but sometimes the shadow areas look gloomy

You'll need to a tripod for this, and a camera that will allow you to adjust the depth of field in relation to the shutter speed

  1. Switch on the indoor lights.   Put your camera on the tripod and set the shutter speed to a tenth of a second (or thereabouts)
  2. Set your camera's metering to adjust the depth of field to fit with that shutter speed.  You may well then have front to back sharpness
  3. What you will also have is the softness and naturalness of the daylight without the sombre shadows, which will be taken away by the artificial light in the room

The slow shutter speed will allow the beautiful natural light to be the main source of light in the shot
