One of the first things a photographer typically stresses out a little bit too much over, is the selection of a place to do the photography. But once you know how to control the lighting, you can use any place and turn it into a portrait studio. In order to illustrate this, I grabbed Stephanie Tracey, one of the instructors at The Center for Arts and Technology, Okanagan to model for me for this series of fantastic lighting in portraiture outside of the men’s room! Off-camera flash has always been popular among professional photographers for its ability to create a nice ratio to give a more dimensional lighting to face when doing portraiture. While the Lightsphere creates a soft “wraparound” like when used in its traditional position, you can quickly turn any wall into a soft box by simply pointing the open top at a wall between yourself and your subject. The Lightsphere itself creates a “fill” light so that the bounce off the wall is not too harsh.
