DIY is where we started, and we love to return to it whenever possible…especially for tutorials like this.
Columbus, Ohio-based photographer Nick Fancher believes that you can “studio” anywhere, turning the most ordinary locations into quality pseudo-studios. In this video (after the jump), Nick shows us how he constructed a simple and portable v-flat lighting configuration using (what appears to be) foam board and tape.
The setup is pretty creative, especially with the built-in snoots. But, the real beauty of this v-flat configuration is that you can customize the reflective center to create custom catchlights in your subject’s eyes.
So, be creative, and get creating! Maybe even build a custom reflector in the shape of your logo for some shameless advertising…
