    iPad as Light Source

    Recently I've been experimenting with using iPad as a photo light.

    I normally use a tent and a couple of lights for photographing watches indoors. But we have family living with us for a few months and the house is crowded, my stuff is packed away. So for recent acquisitions I've had to improvise to get photos. I've used my iPad as a light. Sometimes my iPhone gets into the act and most recently my computer screen as well. Here are some results:












    Those were mostly done like this. Sometimes I used my iPhone to fill in light from the opposite side.



    Then iPad underneath and iPhone above:







    .

    And then with more light from computer screen:

    A good idea. Soft, diffused light is key - and light from an iPad is intentionally soft. Cool!

    Nicely done. I haven't used an ipad but I have used my cell phone in a pinch. example. The interior of the car is being lit with two cell phones turned to flashlight mode.
