I am going to set up to take pictures of my newborn. In the room I am setting up in it has bay windows that lets in alot of light. How do I need to set up. Do I need the light to the side of where I am taking pics or do I need to set up facing the windows?The sun light isn't coming directly in the window. The window faces south. But it lights up the room really good. I hope this question makes sense!
Maybe someone here can post a pull back shot for you, but speaking generally, you want to angle yourself at the window so that the light isn't hitting directly from the side or straight on (think 45 degree angle).
I can't wait to see more pics of your littlest man!
There is a great post on this on ILP. Don't know if you have ever looked over there, but it's worth creating a log in just to view this thread for what you are looking for.
There are even pull back pictures to go along with the info...really helpful.
Can't wait to see the pics!!
Ive always wondered this too.. I want to try to take some indoor shots with natural light but wasnt quite sure whre to begin with setup. Im going to check out that link now
You usually want to try to go with the light at a 45 degree angle from the baby. and if you can use a reflector, that's helpful too.

Ok so should you also have your other subjects (non-newborn) at the same 45 angle? Or different
For my shoot indoors with seamless, I set the paper and subject to a 45 degree angle to the big double window. The light was hitting the baby's front/right side. I still have most everything set up, I'll try to get a pull-back taken for you.
