To celebrate the launch of our brand new Natural Light eBook this week your photographic challenge is to take and share a portrait – lit only with natural light.

Feel free to take any approach to this challenge that you want. You might like to shoot a portrait of a friend, a child, an older person or even a Self Portrait. You could shoot with your DSLR or a camera phone. You can shoot something in Black and White or Color. It might be a silhouette or backlit, a shot at a window or something out in midday sun.

It is completely up to you – as long as it is only lit with natural light you’re welcome to submit it.

Check out these window lit natural light images for a little inspiration.

Once you’ve selected the ‘Natural Light Portrait’ image that you’d like to share – upload it to your favourite photo sharing site or blog and either share a link to it or – embed them in the comments using the our new tool to do so.

If you tag your photos on Flickr, Instagram, Twitter or other sites with Tagging tag them as #DPSNATURALPORTRAITto help others find them. Linking back to this page might also help others know what you’re doing so that they can share in the fun.

Also – don’t forget to check out some of the great shots posted in last weeks challenge – Posed challenge where there were some great shots submitted.
