Turn Pegboard Into A Fashion Photography Backdrop

Good photography isn't all about having a big budget and I am always a fan of photographers who can prove it. Columbus, Ohio based photographer Nick Fancher just sent me a quick video that outlines his very simple, yet brilliant, lighting idea. Nick took some cheap pegboard and lit it from behind creating a hundreds of little beads of light behind his subject. By using a wide aperture he could blur each of these bursts of light to create some pretty compelling images.

I love Nick Fancher. He just gets it done. He inspires me by with his no-excuses-just-shoot attitude.
