How to Create Window Light Using Flash

The look of light coming through a window is one of the most recognizable out there, even to non-photographers, and it is something you will often want to replicate in the studio. Luckily, with a bit of know-how and some basic equipment, it is not particularly difficult to do, and this excellent video tutorial will show you how it is done. 

Coming to you from David Bergman with Adorama TV, this great video tutorial will show you how to replicate window light when using flash in studio. It might sound a little strange to want to imitate natural light with artificial light, but the look of window light is so familiar and pleasing to most eyes that it is a great technique to know. Furthermore, you might not always have a proper window in your studio or the time of day or weather might not be right, and as always, the beauty of using flash is that you do not have to wait for nature to give you what you are looking for. It is a functional and creative look that is well worth adding to your bag of tricks. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Bergman.
