I am trying to capture HTTPS traffic between a client (windows machine) and a server. I would like to do this before the traffic is encrypted as I would like to analysis its contents.

Is there an easy way to do this on the local machine? For example, could I set up a local HTTP proxy to achieve this?

Yes, you can set up a proxy like Fiddler to do this.

After you install and launch it, you have to enable HTTPS decryption in its options.
