kiddin...but really , a gal's room very secret one lah.dun wish to share pics of it.
who's lin chiling?
open house?no need lah. i dont want the unwanted attention honestly.
i've been forumming for sometime, and yes, there are wolves among saints...
though i have to admit, the old birds here are a nice bunch.
I would say getting a 1kW and a 500W is good start, later u can add another 500W if need to, or sell the 500W and buy another 1kW also can. Bowens light u can control the flash power.
A normal adult is about 1.6m-1.8m tall, so u dun need a lot of space to shoot full lenght, however, u need a lot of space if u shoot groups of ppl.
(tip #1, try to practise that standing position everyday for 15 minutes, it will help u to hold camera without handshake...)
oh anyhow, i'm getting enlightened by saints now so it doesnt really matter since i'm not looking for boyfriends/husband.
u gonna get your a$$ spanked for a comment like that.good luck!
my small a$$ sure needs some pilate for humanised VR
i dun want to buy then sell, buy then sell.now no one even wants my 80-200.less to say a 500w milo tin.it's a hassle selling things over forum.so many liasons to do.cant afford the time.luckily i got personal concierge.
sigh...all these said, i dont even know eventually i will like studio portraiture or not.later all dump into storeroom...but i would love to try it.seen too many nice pics from this forum.tempted!
A light tent is like a big soft box to take product shots in. The subject is placed in the light tent and the strobes on either side, on top etc... The tent is used to diffuse the lighting. You get an effect like this...
I pick up most of my stuff from ebay. I mainly use fabric backdrops and those can be folded, they feel like curtain fabric and can be stored pretty easily when not in use. Paper backdrops are another option but it really depends what sort of look you're going after in your portraits. I find that paper backdrops are harder to store in a home studio and they crease very easily when not properly handled. If fabric creases, you just iron it out.
if you look at astin's link of his studio, my room is slightly bigger than that.and he has 2 x 500w and 1 x 1kwatt.
so how?i'm confused.so 500w suff bo?
i saw the lighttent in japan.but didnt know what it was for.
man...you guys should see some of the big electrical shops in japan like bic camera.
they got everything A to Z DISPLAYED.
their philosophy is more like 'no display no talk' (NDNT)
wow... so fast having home studio liao ?
anyway.. i think its best for u to visit some of the guy's studios before deciding on wat u want.. cheers...
i'm a hobbyist,not to mention i newbie, not to mention i may not eventually like studio, not to mention i got budget, not to mention....
2 enuff for me first lah.i use sb26, small and portable and hiddenable behind subject for backdrop lighting.
