Unless photography is our full-time occupation, and even if it is, many of us cannot afford to own a Studio space. Sure, we can rent as needed. But if you have the space and aren’t opposed to having clients come to your home, you can easily set up a nice, professional studio without paying a bundle.
Here’s the basics of what you need:
You can either order some or make your own. I would suggest getting or designing at least 3, a black, a Grey or white and one molted color blue or grey.
If you get steady lights it will be cheaper and you won’t need any triggers or sync tools. If you want to go a little more expensive, you can get strobe units for a reasonable price so long as you aren’t looking for the big brands.
These are more affordable than soft boxes and basically do the same thing. They also come with some lighting units as part of the deal.
You can check out my upcoming book on how to make your own reflectors, diffusers, product setup and more. I’ll be sure to let you know when it is out.
