Transform Your Portrait Photography Single Strobe Setup from Bland to BAM!

Exploring Photography—AdoramaTV

Follow Mark Wallace as he uses a mirror, a long zoom lens, and a single light without any modifier to transform a single-light portrait from blah to beautiful.


Problem: Hard light from a single light source—a Profoto D1 500—and a plain background results in a boring, poorly-lit portrait. How does Mark Wallace add interest and improve light without adding another light source? Solution: A mirror, a wardrobe rack, a long lens, and imagination! Join Mark in this exclusive AdoramaTV episode and watch how he uses a magic mirror trick to transform a single light portrait. But stick around after 5:30—there's a bonus tip and an assignment for you!
