Learn how to use and shoot with artificial indoor light
If you think flash is the only way to get beautiful indoor pictures at night, then you will be excited to know that this isn’t true! While it might be preferred in some instances to use flashes or other lighting equipment, it’s not always convenient. Which is why it is important to learn how to use the available artificial light inside your home. There are so many special moments and routines that happen after the sun goes down, and if you are only documenting your life during “golden hour” when that pretty sun is pouring through your windows, then you are going to miss out on capturing so many things.
