Lighting with the SQIBB method.

SQIBB stands for Studio Quality Invisible Black Backdrop. Basically, you can take a picture literally anywhere, like the park or inside your living room, and it will look like it was taken in a studio with a black backdrop. This is achieved by using a speed light with a “snoot” to focus the light in a specific spot. Then by manipulating the camera settings, the ambient light is not visible, the only light that will be picked up is by the speed light. This method is super useful if you want something diverse. Its also very useful if there isn’t any good place with good lighting/background. SQIBB is so easy and makes you look like a really experienced photographer. I loved using this concept because I could get super creative and there are so many different variations to do so many things.
