The weaver  In a small ethnic Miao village I was invited into a home and taken down the stairs into a dark smoky basement room where a woman was weaving by the light coming through a dirty window.  Biasha Miao ethnic village, Guizhou Province, China  Photographing people indoors in China was a challenge because often there was no light but that which came from a small window.  I didn't want to use flash light since it can give an artificial look to the photos, so started experimenting with 'Rembrandt' style lighting using ambient light from the natural sources. This resulted in a more dramatic lighting than could be achieved using on-camera flash.  Other photos where I experiment with lighting can be seen here: http://goo.gl/Z8W6nW  31/01/15 www.allenfotowild.com
