Shot from outside the window while asking my son to look towards window.
Post processed to make BG brighter.

Best accessory of camera is 3" behind it,
And mine needs an upgrade. . . ;)

Good one. Fairly even diffuse light.
Next try for moody light dark light. ;)

It's wonderful how a window can serve as a great big soft light.  I think I see your silhouette in the catchlight of his eyes.

Very nice image.  Great looking young man.  I know you and your bride must be very proud.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

Thanks. Yes he really makes us proud.

I really love this window as there is nothing in front of it till 100meter so the sky light comes through  it in natural colour.
I will try same technique with my daughter (if I can bribe her to pose  ;) )

To further improve I adjusted the BG further to make it further white as Peter Hurley uses.

I find this one has a better feel what do you say

I agree.  Whiter is better in this situation.
