Tuvia Matai Bobalah is one of my favorite subjects to shoot. Last night, spotting him in a completely dark bedroom — you really could barely see him — I got the idea to try to use my iPad as a lighting source. After emailing the example to Bob Marcotte, he responded with news that there was an iPad Softbox app. I didn’t download the one he suggested, but saw a different one I liked. The image here was shot by putting a solid orange pattern on the iPad and positioning it about 2-3 feet to the right. Lens: 24-70 f2.8/L at 70 mm, f2.8, 0.6 sec, handheld. Some Photoshop work using filters to deal with noise.
