Get Challenge No. 4 – High-Key Portraits (w/ DIY Softbox!) right now!

Soft Boxes can create a beautiful glowing light, but you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg to get one! Achieve the same look with items you have laying around the house too. In this challenge, Lindsay will use two DIY soft boxes using a bed sheet and a shower curtain to create a high-key fashion portrait.

Here’s what’s happening with the 2017 Creative Photo Challenge: Voting for Unusual Angle has just wrapped up last Sunday. We had many great submissions and a ton of voting. Today Lindsay Adler and CreativeLive are happy to announce two champions!
