Using A Speed Light To Mimic Studio Lighting

Lets face it studio lighting is expensive and hard to haul around everywhere! Its to much of a hassle to set up a back ground and then lights and have them all set up perfectly. But I can show you a little trick to eliminate the need for all of that equipment! All you need is a speed light and a modifier!

In order to achieve the look below you will need an f/stop of at least 10 or higher. From there you will take your flash and point it towards your subject. It make take a few tried but you will end up with a dark background and a highlighted subject. This technique is great for head-shots and is also called SQIBB which stands for Studio Quality Invisible Black Background!
