Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Today, I'm going to help you add light for fast indoor photography. Now when you're in a shoot and if you're in a hurry you may not always have time to bring up all your strobes and do everything like that so there's some helpful tips that I can give you. One have a work light with diffusion. Now if you have this work light with diffusion it's very very versatile. You can almost throw it up in any position that you need. The clip on it will actually allow you to attach it to a number of different objects for whatever your need is. Along with that, if you're really in a rut you don't have time to have a work light, don't be afraid to open up a window and put somebody close to it and just get that natural sunlight coming in. It will actually give a very nice soft light that is coming through the window because it's actually a sun that is way way up and that is actually being diffused through all the levels of atmosphere and coming through the window and it's hard to replicate a light that nice. Now another tip that you can have if say it's not daylight, feel free to turn the light on in the room, just be very aware of where your shadows are falling onto the people's faces because say you've got a light and it's directly above somebody and you turn it on, it could give kind of a nasty shadow that's falling onto their face. So go ahead and just have them position themselves correctly to give a much flattering look. Those are just some simple tips on how to add some lighting to some fast indoor amateur photography. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
