This Guy Used a McDonald’s Box as a Soft Light for His iPhone Portraits and the Result Is Amazing

Famous French celebrity photographer Philippe Echaroux already knows a thing or two about taking an amazing photo, but to demonstrate how you don’t always need expensive camera gear to take a great photograph he recently took on a rather bizarre challenge; the Big Mac Portrait Challenge.

Pushing himself out of his comfort zone and the equipment he’s familiar with using Philippe set about taking some portrait photos whilst armed with a torch, an iPhone and a Big Mac box. After a little DIY he turned the Big Mac box into a soft-light to illuminate his portrait photos and the result is actually pretty amazing.
