Making the most of window light

Recently I photographed the wonderful Devika Duggal from The Fashion Algorithm . Here is the image below.

It is a simple image, from a composition point of view but what makes the image is the directional quality of light. The light is coming from camera right. I placed her next to a big window which produced nice soft light giving the effect of big soft-box. Once the light was set it was only about striking a pose and clicking away to get the shot. We are almost at Diwali and you will be presented many such opportunities to photograph people. Use this and get great results.
