Shooting a portrait with window light is one of photography's true joys. But, for this challenge, we asked our readers to actually weave the window -- and anything that may be outside of it -- into the story of the photograph. The results are fascinating and full of genuinely personal moments. Take a look through the gallery for inspiration, then head over to our contests page to see how you can show off your work and get published in Popular Photography.
