If you’ve ever set up lights before photographing something, you’ll know that it’s a tricky yet satisfying business. Trying to dodge shadows, making sure the aperture is right and simultaneously avoiding tripping over a million tangled wires all over the floor isn’t exactly easy. So Jamie Stoker, a London-based photographer had the genius idea of using good old Mother Nature to do the dirty work for him and set up this fantastic studio that needs only natural light.
Obviously the photography can really only be done in the day time, but the fact that weather and shooting at different times of day would change the light is incredibly obvious, but in a “Why didn’t I think of that?” way. Got a conservatory? Got a camera? Get to it.
