Awesome example of nature providing the best light modifiers around.

There was a band of clouds just at the horizon, then a clear patch, the more clouds above us.

Basically what we had was a giant softbox for the direct light, then a giant reflector above.

As you can see, this is some extremely soft light. It is too bad I couldn't set up a portrait session there, kinda had to keep moving....

A few more from this night on my FLICKR, it was a really spectacular night. It was very overcast all day, but right after we blew up the IED, the clouds broke and we had an awesome sunset.

I love any type of atmospheric effects like this. Some are harder to capture than others but this one was relatively easy.
