Even to the non-photographer, the look of light through a window is quite recognizable, and as such, it is an excellent way to give your portraits an elegant and timeless look. Of course, we do not always have the ability to just use a window with natural sunlight streaming through, and as such, knowing how to create it in studio is a useful skill. Thankfully, it is not that difficult, nor does it require a lot of equipment. This excellent video tutorial will show you how to do it with just a single speedlight

Coming to you from Jiggie Alejandrino, this awesome video tutorial will show you how to create window light in studio using just a speedlight and a scrim. If you have not seen one before, a scrim is nothing more than a bit of material placed between your light and the subject the diffuses and softens the light. They’re fantastically easy to use quite versatile. Check out the video above for the full rundown from Alejandrino.
