Over at SLR Lounge, the team are getting back to the basics with a new free tutorial series. The tutorials are being kicked off with an episode about photographing nighttime portraits using only a phone flashlight.

Of course, you can get great results with expensive dedicated lighting equipment, but it turns out you capture nice images using only your phone's flashlight and a few accessories, including a cake icing tip, gaff tape and a small tripod. You can learn more by reading the full article and watching the full video below.

For those interested in the camera gear that Pye Jirsa was using in the video above, he was armed with a Canon EOS R with an adapted Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II prime lens.
