Window light is a natural light source that can create beautiful light for portraits for both video and stills.  It's a constant and immediately available light source that is defined by the size of the window and the proximity of the subject to the window.  Large windows give softer light with brighter backgrounds and smaller windows give harder light with darker backgrounds.  The same principle applies to soft boxes.  Large boxes create soft...
