Photo Challenge: Shooting a Portrait with $1 DIY Light Modifiers


Tokyo-based editorial photographer Irwin Wong is starting a new series of videos titled “Nissin Impossible.” Each episode will feature Wong trying to create the best photos he can while following unusual restrictions and conditions imposed on him by the folks over at the flash company Nissin.

In the 9.5-minute pilot episode above, Wong is tasked with shooting studio portraits using DIY light modifiers that cost a maximum of ¥100 (~80 cents) each. Wong is given ¥1,000 (~$8) to go and buy the supplies needed. At the end, Wong reviews the resulting photos he created and describes the lighting setups he used for each one.
