One readily available natural light source irrespective of any other climatic factors and the one which doesn’t cost the photographer any extra bucks would definitely be the Window Lighting.
Hence in this article we bring you the Merits of Window lighting, the camera settings you would have to adjust and then some theory behind placing your subject accordingly, for the desired result.
So basically window light is the soft light, which comes in through your windows when the sky is slightly on the overcast side. Making yourself ready to shoot with window lighting can be challenging in terms of various elements. Taking into account on Ansel Adams Zone system one can experiment with various shades of black with varied exposure or shutter speed.
Considering, these keypoints on Window lighting must have made you familiar to this lighting, try to light a still life object using window light.
The Canon 5D Mark III (current version) is a great camera though and I’ve carried it up hard multi day winter ascents such as Manitua on the Grandes Jorasses as well as light and fast climbs in Patagonia, Alaska and the Himalayas. Unfortunately the 5D Mark III felt like a pretty poor update over its younger sibling the Mark II.
The Sony A7 system arrived with huge fanfare in 2014, well the body anyway, the lens line up meant that whilst I was tempted to try out a Sony A7 I couldn’t justify it professionally due to the poor lens line up.
For the Sony A7R II the line up is a bit more varied and interesting, as well as more expensive. I used to always carry a Canon 5D with me wherever I went - whether that be out ice cragging or on expedition to the Greater Ranges. Having said that the Sony A7R II is certainly creeping back up on my radar for personal climbs, I guess it will be a bit of a fight between the two really. For me there really is only one choice when it comes to the Olympus E-M5 lens wise, and it was one of the reasons why I chose this camera in the first place. As for my EM5 Mark II I cut out all the interior of a Lowe Pro 60 AW pouch which gives me just enough space. I’ve never really bought in to the holster systems that clip on to your backpack straps simply because the camera just gets in the way.
In my instance the Sony A7R II and Zeiss FE 16-35 works amazingly well on the DS1 Beholder. The most important piece of kit for videographers is a really good Air Blower - it’s a cardinal sin to have dust marks on your sensor whilst shooting video so make sure you use it every single time you change lens in the field (another good reason for keeping your lens selection small). The dough can also be stored in the refrigerator for up to 5 days if you want to save some dough and bake the cookies later.
To the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment combine the egg, bananas, sugars, butter, vanilla, and beat on medium-high speed until well combined, about 4 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the oats, flour, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and beat on low speed until just combined, about 1 minute.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl, and add the chocolate chips, and beat on low speed until just combined, about 30 seconds. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet or a cookie rack for about 10 minutes before serving. Cookies will keep airtight at room temperature for up to 1 week or in the freezer for up to 6 months. These cookies are a great way to use up your overripe bananas. They are a great little twist on the classic Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies!

I had so much fun from setting up the venue, to getting ready with all my bridesmaids in the bridal suite, to walking into our dreamy reception!
It was important to us that our wedding be sentimental, so I wore my mother’s wedding dress that my grandmother originally handmade in 1971. First the exposure techniques have to be thoroughly understood which can later be overcome with the shutter speed. Second make sure you don’t pump up the ISO beyond limits, for this you can always increase the aperture or use a tripod. Since we already spoke about backlight, try placing your subject by 45° and the reflector if needed at the same level from the camera, to avoid those contrast shadows. Throw in the fact that in our sport we tend to favour the small and light things in life, it means that we’re constantly looking to squeeze every ounce of performance out of our kit.


At the time it was the smallest full frame DSLR on the market, with its size and weight right on the limit of what I would call acceptable for mountain use. One truth in the camera world is that if you want to get the very best quality pictures you are going to be weighed down quite a bit, that’s just life.
Yes it was a better camera than the Mark II, but seeing as both the Mark I and Mark II were so groundbreaking, the Mark III failed to offer any exciting new terrain.
Fast forward a couple of years for Sony to iron out the kinks in such a before-its-time system as well as beef up the lenses available and I actually swapped my professional set up this year from the 5D system to the A7. What really attracted me to the Canon 5D series back in the day was the lens line up compared to the Nikon one. I shot my whole expedition, night time photos, video and all on a camera I could actually clip to my harness.
One thing is for sure is that the EM5 and EM5 Mark II have shot some of my most iconic photos to date. You can get lost for days researching ball heads and trying to get a grasp of which one is best for you combined with which insanely expensive carbon fibre tripod you will need to buy with it.
For example the Canon 5D Mark III is very battery efficient but then again it doesn’t shoot high bit rate video. Planned and coordinated by Brooke Keegan Special Events, this garden wedding inspiration shoot characteristics soft blue hues and airy, romantic vibes.
The key to continuing to fit into your pants if you make say the Caramelized Shallot and Gruyere Fondue is to take it to a party so you can’t eat the whole bowl by yourself.
Thank you for the shares … and for making such a delicious looking Greek yogurt dip!!
Sounds funny, but you’ll want to tell everyone how much fun you had and that you can’t wait to see your new, updated modeling portfolio images! It was a day I had dreamed of since I was five years old, and we are thankful for The Springs and our wonderful vendors for making our whole day absolutely fabulous. I have to say, my favorite memory was seeing my vision after months and months of planning finally come together. So I searched all over Pinterest, The Knot, Wedding Wire, and the Internet to plan every little detail myself. I miss breakfast all too often, and because of lack of time, I make my kids turn to cereal due to the ease of it. In Fine art Portraits window light plays a major role in those sensational indoor photographs.
The Diffused light usually produces less contrast compared to the normal light, here the shadows are gentle and the acquired result is very much close to what we see with our naked eye. Thirdly ask any Professional, focusing in lowlight with larger aperture would be a nightmare, here I would ask you to practice more and manual focus on the highlights of the subject say catchlights on eye for better results.
One Basic thing about this lighting is the lightsource remains fixed and the subject has to be rotated to achieve desired effect which is always perfect since there are no adjustments needed for lightsource like in studio setup. The lack of 4K filming ability in this modern world has been a real handicap, and the features, functions, and sensor now feel very old. It felt a little odd downsizing in both size and weight on my professional rig but I’ve not regretted it once - the only thing the 5D has over the A7 in my view is the faster FPS and buffering speed.
Broadly speaking if you are interested in film work primarily then you want the Sony A7S II and if you’re in to photography and film making then you want the Sony A7R II. The new Sony G Master Lenses as well as the Zeiss line up make for some very professional (and expensive!) glass that will bring incredible results to both photo and video work, whilst compact enough to think about taking up hard routes as well. The G Master series are absolute top quality and very expensive glass - I have no doubt that combined with the A7R II body you’re going to come away with incredible imagery. It was a completely different system to my previous 5D set up but the photo quality blew me away - it’s never going to be as good as a 5D Mark III and 16-35mm lens, but it was the first time I felt the decrease in quality was more than justified by the weight and size savings. The great thing about this system is that I can clip it to my harness and that makes for insanely quick and easy access- exactly the kind of access system I need to compliment a camera system that is meant to be light and fast. So cheap that people often think I’m joking when I say that’s what I use - but for photography why do you need anything super complicated? A great piece of kit, with huge battery life, super compact, very fast to set up, and takes a good beating.
On top of that make sure you buy fast ones, it will help with the file buffering which all modern day cameras have issues with. We are daily publishing decorationg ideas, interior design ideas ,home design tips, creative ideas and very useful tips for you.

While I’m all for counting myself as a party of one and eating an inappropriate amount of dip, that fondue is so good that you can’t stop eating it. Most recently I was walking through Target and saw one of my models out of LA on several posters around the store. We decided to dedicate our wedding to our parents who have demonstrated daily that marriage is possible.


I imagine many of you haven’t considered cooking an egg in pasta sauce, but you will not regret it! We the Photographers should take inspiration from the artists whose splendid paintings were those of models lit by the window light. I tend to judge photographers based on how little they can do a shoot with rather than how much kit they have with them - the more experience you have the less you have to rely on extra gear to pull it off successfully. It’s odd that the most groundbreaking camera series in my professional lifetime has gone 4 years without seeing the Mark IV released. Canon dominates the line up over Nikon offering both the EF 17-40mm F4L as well as the EF 16-35mm F2.8L.
But for those of us who don’t want to carry the weight there is a more reasonable option in the G and Zeiss ranges. This lens is the bomb, primarily because it retracts in on itself when you’re not using it, meaning that it packs away at half the size. The idea of bringing extra padding in my backpack on purpose is just beyond me, when I go climbing I want to keep my pack volume as small as possible.
It really will add a very professional feel to everything you shoot for only a very small investment.
Dips are really great for a crowd because you can eat as little or as much of it as you want. And as always one can adjust the curtains if you think the exposure is maximum and place a reflector at the back if you think the subject is dark. I started off using the 5D system with the 17-40mm due to the lens being a bit smaller and lighter than the 16-35mm, carrying it up hard multi-day routes around the world meant I was quite obsessed with every gram and millimeter saved.
Then the Olympus E-M5 came out - the camera that revolutionised the way I shoot and am able to climb more than any other. All that we need now is an EM5 Mark III to come out soon with 4K filming capabilities. Combined with the body of the EM5 Mark II I’ve suddenly got a professional quality camera in an (almost) point and shoot size. If I’m carrying my Sony A7R II or Canon 5D Mark III then I just shove it in the top of my pack- no foam padding or anything (personal choice).
Handheld gimbals have exploded in the last couple of years so that the DJI Ronin, the Bible in the gimbal world a couple of years ago, has been quickly superseded by much smaller and lighter systems. Like I say think about your camera set up and then the total weight, a good place to start looking at gimbal options is on the B&H PhotoVideo Gimbal Page.
Plus, it’s easily portable if you are bringing it to another party and they are always a hit. I eventually upgraded to the 16-35mm and accepted that the extra weight and size was worth it for the increase in quality. Pin sharp and perfectly suited for Alpine and Climbing Photography needs it has now become my new favourite set up for professional work. I actually bought it for my first trip to Pakistan feeling that trying unclimbed technical 7000m peaks might be a bit excessive with a full frame DSLR. This is definitely something you want to do some research in to as it will depend on the weight of your camera - ideally you want to get a gimbal that covers your body and lens weight and nothing more. Since I planned to top my eggs with shredded parmesan cheese, I thought this sauce lended well to the flavors. As fate would have it my 5D actually broke at the very start of the trip (the only time I have ever had a 5D malfunction on me which is saying something). I keep lens caps off as well, it’s an extra thing to hold, take off, and put back on again. With the 16-35mm and the 24-105mm that was all I needed for photoshoots, bringing two lenses is my maximum on big mountain photoshoots - instead just adapt your shooting style to what you have. The latter lens is a masterpiece of lens design for the weight and size but I will leave it at home if I’m on a serious climb. When I’m focused on climbing for myself that needs to come first, the beauty of the EM5 setup is that I can just about squeeze it in to a Lowe Pro Apex 60 AW pouch (with a bit of cutting and chopping of the insides) and then that clips on to my harness. For me it’s all about time, and I can unsling my pack off one shoulder, unzip the top, take my camera out, and put it all away again without having to actually stop. This is an absolute no hassle breakfast that tastes amazing, and works for a yummy dinner on a busy weeknight! The Italian Basted Eggs on Ciabatta are a great way to get some of the necessary food groups into your day. Remember it’s all about streamlining your setup - a telephoto lens may be useful here and there but honestly do you really need it? Yes you may miss one or two unique shots you could only get with a telephoto but on a proper alpine climb carrying and faffing about with a third lens may cost me another really nice shot in the first place.
