Molding ambient light - I really love photography, especially taking picks of my boys! But sometimes it's so hard to get the right light when you don't have all the "photographer" equipment...I found this article that helps out so much my explaining how to mold the ambient light to work for you!
The only light for this photo came in from the direction of the garage door, directly behind the camera (in front of Natalie). The walls of the garage subtracted light from the sides and back of the image. A lighting diagram for this scenario can be seen below. The softbox in this diagram represents the reflection from the surrounding environment in direct sunlight, and the black reflectors represent the walls of the garage."
