Umbrella Specular Portrait

I gave you some ideas on where to find such a backdrop in the previous post (see link above) but be creative. And speaking of being creative, try to look beyond the mere technique and make a real photo of someone. Add some personal style, catch a nice moment — do something to make this a photo, rather than just a lighting technique. (via Strobist).

This one’s really going to be a challenge for me since I haven’t yet purchased a softbox or a shoot through umbrella. Let’s see just how creative I can be. Maybe I’ll make my own softbox.
