Light Is Light

I asked my friends to hold their phones around this lemon-mint drink at Lameeya. By carefully positioning the LED light from the three phones, I lit the drink as how I would in a studio. Of course in a studio, I can use a variety of light shapers, snoots and diffusers. Here with an impromptu shot at the restaurant, I used paper napkins as diffusers and my palm as a light cutter.

The takeaway here? Light is light. Once you understand how it paints your subject, you can turn the plain into something beautiful. Anywhere.
