Allan organised an AP Meet on Saturday to shoot some sport/fitness type photographs. Towards the end of the session, we migrated to one of the training room with a set of mirrors as a wall at one end. This proved to be an excellent backdrop and allowed me to really blur out the background (by effectively making it twice as far away).
While giving the appearance of purely natural light, this is actually lit with a single flaash fired into a gold reflector (camera left).
Simple techniques like this are some of the things we discuss in or Portrait Workshops.
