How to Use your Phone or Laptop as a Quick ‘n’ Dirty Softbox
We love tips like these.
Our pal David over at Strobist has been using his iPhone along with the MyLite app (free) as a teeny-tiny, palm-sized, always-there softbox.
It’s no strobe, and it’s sure not gonna light up a room, but for a gentle kiss of light at that key moment, it does just the trick.
Works great in long exposures (think light painting), or when the light’s just fading away at twilight.
