Tips and Tricks: Making Soft Light

You’d love to shoot a nice, soft lit portrait but have no soft box? No flex fill? Is your flash making everything come out too harsh? (haven’t a clue what I’m talking about? Stay tuned for IP-101‘s beginners lighting course) A quick fix to that hard flash is right at your finger tips, literally! Get some scotch tape and a tissue and put the tissue over your flash.

Suddenly those harsh shadows don’t look so harsh and you spent nothing!

Unless you count the cost of tissue and tape.
