The light inside is not as good as outside in daylight.

However, direct sunlight creates strong shadows which often don't look good for photos of the face.

Therefore - take your photo outside, on a sunny day, but stand in the shade and make sure the scene behind you is shaded. For example, find a building wall that is in shade and take the photo there.
