Matthew and impromptu lighting

After I attended a workshop with Jerry Ghionis and Sandy Puc', I was inspired to try some impromptu lighting techniques.

Well, last night after church, I was talking with my good friend Matt, and we decided to head outside to take a few pictures.

We spied a large business sign at ground level that was back-lit with fluorescent bulbs just across the street that would make a great soft-box.

This picture was taken, using the sign as the main fill light, and Levi used my Android phone as the back/hair light.  No flash was used.

I was pretty pleased with how it turned out and I look forward to using existing light sources a lot more in future photo shoots!

So, what do you think? Shall we call a modeling agency and try to hire this guy out? :o)


  1. Must say that this is a great shot :) Awesome job!

  2. Thanks guys! I am always on the lookout for business signs now! LOL
