Indoor Photography Shooting Guide

So today I wanted to take a minute to let you know about a fantastic new downloadable e-book, the ‘Indoor Shooting Guide‘ from my book photographer, Amy Tripple, and a fellow photography colleague of hers, Heidi Peters. I absolutely adore Amy’s work. There was no one else I would have rather photographed all the adorable little girls and clothing in my book, ‘Sew Classic Clothes for Girls‘. Amy’s work is fresh, inspiring and just…..well……..stunning. Amy doesn’t live far from me and here in the Midwest, we are forced to take many of our photos indoors during a good portion of the year. So when I saw that Amy and Heidi were releasing an indoor photography shooting guide, I just about fell over from excitement.

About 9 months or so ago I got a fancy new camera as reward for myself after my book released (Canon 5D Mark iii). To be honest, the camera is a tad (or maybe like……WAY) over my head, but I figured, if I was going to upgrade from my basic DSLR, I was going to go all the way. So I’m still really trying to learn how to use it and shooting indoors gives me the most trouble. We live in a 1930’s cottage and while it’s really charming and sweet, it doesn’t get a ton of natural light. And there are lots of different rooms with different layouts and angles, but none of them are very large (so it goes with old homes).

When I got my copy of the ‘Indoor Shooting Guide‘ I wasn’t quite sure what to expect since I hadn’t seen the description yet. Was it going to talk more about studio lighting or was it going to be more natural light photography (which is what I love so much about Amy’s work)? And thankfully, it was just what I had hoped it would be. The guide takes you through capturing natural light photography inside your home. There are tips from how to position your subject in a room to capture the right light, how to utilize back-lighting, using light reflectors indoors, editing images and so much more. Check out the table of contents above!

For me, my very VERY favorite part of the guide is where they talk about the exact image settings for achieving a certain look. Since I am trying really hard to shoot in manual mode, this was just so wonderful to see the exact camera settings using a specific lens. I also enjoy seeing the behind the scenes of the different pictures. For example, you can see Amy here photographing in this little hallway, but you would never guess that’s where the image was photographed based on the finished product. They also show you how a room is set up for shooting families and multiple children using side light, reflectors, back light and so much more!!

So if you are like me and want to really improve your indoor photography using your camera in manual mode, you need to check out this guide. It will be an invaluable resource and reference guide for you as you continue along your photography journey. I have no ambitions of becoming a photographer but I do love taking really great pictures of my kids. And with my new little bundle due in just a couple weeks, I need all the help I can get before she arrives!

Just so you know, Amy provided me with a complimentary copy of the Indoor Shooting Guide, but I was not paid for my review and all opinions and ideas are 100% my own (I really do love this guide)!
