We were hanging out Thanksgiving day getting everything ready for the feast. Sabine was playing around in her room, but it was very dark. We have those super knock-out-light removing blinds in there in case she naps. Rather than open the blinds up the entire way and let the sun bathe the room, I wanted to eek open a tiny bit of light into the room. Taking a stylistic cue from David Duchemin or Joe McNally, I figured, “Hey.. place baby by beam of light.. that should work..”
The thing you have to think about here is this. You probably wouldnt want to stare at the sun.. so neither will a small child. Instead of -facing- her to the sun, I put her back to it to get some around the hair. because I was metering for her head, I was guaranteed to throw the rest of the room near dark.
