Shooting Indoors Using Natural Light {Bloomington, IL Photographer}

I don’t know about you all, but this polar vortex is killing me! I keep going through photos of my girls from last summer, longing to be outside in the warm sunshine with a soft breeze blowing through my hair. More importantly, we should be gearing up for outdoor spring sessions, but with a foot of snow outside and sub-zero temps, we might be stuck taking more pictures indoors. Living in the Midwest with our cold, overcast winters has forced me to learn a lot about how to utilize indoor light to produce stunning images. With that being said, learning how to shoot indoors is one of the most frustrating obstacles for newer photographers and consumers with DSLRs. Have you tried to take pictures of clients or your own kids indoors only to get weird color casts, blurry images and dark faces?

If you answered yes, I have some great news for you! I will soon be offering hands on one-on-one and small group mentoring sessions covering the basics on how to master shooting indoors with a DSLR. This will be open to photographers as well as non-photographers wanting to learn for personal use. I’m in the process of creating the electronic workbooks that each person who purchases a mentoring session with receive. Full details will be posted in the next two weeks.

Registration will open on February 28. One-on-one mentoring sessions will be $75 and include one hour of instruction, a PDF workbook and access to a private facebook group where you can ask me questions and post your work for critique. Small group sessions are $50 per person (up to three in a group), so if you have friends that would benefit, sign up together to get the discount!

  • It is recommended that students have a camera capable of ISO over 1600, as well as a lens that allows for wide apertures (f/2, f/1.8, f/1.4, f/1.2).
  • Students should already know how to shoot in manual mode (if you don’t shoot in manual but would like to learn, contact me for a separate mentoring session).

PRE-REGISTRATION early bird special is open NOW (special good through February27):

One-on-one mentoring is $60.

Small group mentoring is $35.

To sign up, please contact me at with subject header “Mentoring”. Please indicate whether you would like to sign up for the one-on-one or small group. Paypal invoices for the registration fee will be due within 24 hours of being sent. Registration fees are non-refundable and must be paid in full. For small group mentoring, each person must contact me separately.
