Available Light Portraits

I love portraits taken with available light. They capture the subject at her/his most natural. It’s one photographic style that I’d like to be really good at. The cathedral ceiling in our foyer and over-sized windows around the house provide plenty of natural light. On this Saturday afternoon, just before leaving for dinner, I sat Francine on one corner of our dining table. I find that if she’s wearing a shirt she really likes, she’ll let me take photos of her. In this shoot, she’s wearing a gift from her friend, Kim.
