How to turn a bathroom into a softbox

Jay P. Morgan of The Slanted Lens shows you how to turn a bathroom (or any other room for that matter) into a softbox for nice soft light. A great way to get nice lighting on a tight budget.

While you're in your bathroom you can of course use a shower curtain to soften the light too.

Personally I would have put the model in front of one of the side walls. That way the soft light comes in from the side and this will give you much more depth in your images.
