Softbox & natural light experiment

 

I had the itch to shoot yesterday and had no one to shoot with so I decided to mess around with my softbox and reflector in our spare bedroom. As much as I love shooting in natural light, sometimes the lighting isn't always perfect so that's where a softbox can be pretty helpful. I'd love to get into fashion photography so mastering lighting is a must when it comes to that style of photography. Although I'm no master at lighting, It was a lot of fun experimenting with the balance of natural light coming in the bedroom and the lighting from the softbox. I'm usually super camera shy, but I am definitely more comfortable when I take the photos myself. There was a handful of pretty awkward photos, but here's a few that I approved of.
