Turn Virtually Any Logo Into A Photo Booth Catch Light With This Modifier

Each modifier we pick renders a different reflection in the eyes of our subject and can give the image a completely different feel. I recently discovered a way to build virtually any shape modifier that can be used in a mobile photo booth or permanent installment in your studio. And it's amazing!

The One Tool Every Photographer Should Be An Expert In

Great photographers need to be excellent problems solvers that can rig up anything.

When you are running a team of people, working with clients on set, or doing a test shoot by yourself, you will always have a new idea or inspiration that challenges you to light something differently.

They agonize over the processing, feedback from peers, and then publish the images for the world to consume. Sadly 97% of these photographers aren't copyrighting these images making them much more attractive to steal. We need your help to fix this, Adobe.

Aurora Borealis actually means dawn of the north, and can best be seen during peak winter months around the magnetic North Pole.
