Using iPhone 4 as Main Light.

I just want to share some fun I had with a class the other day. We went outside a last time as it was getting dark. I wanted to use a row of fun chairs as background. It left me with soft light from above, dark eyes and little direction. So I used my iPhone 4 with the application istrobeLED as main light. In some exposures we used the normal screen on a Nokia phone as a softer fill light. The Canon 85mm 1.2 was the perfect lens for the occasion, it blurs so nicely. Creativity in photography is mostly thought of as different images, but it is also the ability to solve problems.

Canon 85mm 1.2 & 1.4 to a make sure both eyes are sharp. 1/200sec. 500 ISO.

What a great idea to use your phone as a fill. I think I will be using that idea in one of my upcoming classes.
