Step 1: Materials

-iPhone selfie stick
( e.g.
-4 flashlights
( e.g.
-2 bins

Step 2: Prep Flashlights

This step is pretty simple just cover The lens on all four of your flashlight with masking tape

Step 3: Set Up the Set (I Know, Confusing)

First set on a piece of paper and put your first bin next to use masking tape to tape your second piece of paper to the bin. Then put your second van across from then and set down flashlight on all four sides of the paper. Finally set up your selfie stick facing at the object. Turn off the lights turn on your flashlight and you're ready take your picture!

Step 4: Taking the Photo

As you can imagine this step is fairly simple all you need to do is go to the camera app turn off flash turn on HDR and take your photo! The only other thing you might consider is using filters. I used Chrome for mine I thought it made the yellow and Orange more vibrant.
I left some photos of what it would look like if I had used different filters

Step 5: Photoshop

Even even that photoshopping the image can be done on your phone! I use the free app called aviary. The Photoshop process is pretty simple the only things I do is crop, adjust sharpness and blemish and blur the shadows. Once your images fully Photoshop you are done with your beautiful picture

    This is great! I often take my pictures on a white sheet outside. The lighting is often the best that I've found while on a budget.
