We have this dark red wall in our office that caught my attention. Since our ceilings are white, if i point my speedlight straight on top, the light will just bounce from top all the way to the background. Creating a gradient-like effect on the subject's background.
I noticed that i have to move back a little in order to get a better shot. If i come a little closer, the background will be brighter. But when you stepback a little, the back has this bold, deep red color
Officemates are flocking in and they love the effect of the photos. Its an instant photobooth!
