Hand lighting photography tutorial: The white feather

25 Mar 2013

*** Check out our new tube totorial: ***

This is the first of a serie of tutorials about hand lighting. Join me on my fb page to be notified when I'll release tutorials about the Jellybar, Ribbon, Iris and Solar wind effects.

I have been using this white feather trick for a while as an alternative to using conventional lighting equipment (umbrellas, softboxes...). It's easy, cheap and very efficient.

If you'd like to translate this tutorial in another language, you can download the psd file. (spanish, french, slovak and german are already made).
