Learn how to build a temporary portrait studio in the middle of a parking lot!
In this episode Mark Wallace shows you how to build a high key lighting setup in a parking lot. Mark uses foam core panels and light stands to create shade and control the light. A white background is illuminated by the sun to create a Richard Avedon style photograph for a portable portrait studio. This can be done with or without an on-camera flash.
