    Default mobile studio backdrop

    wanting to make a mobile studio backdrop that can hook up a 50cm fluorescent light tube using a s-hook and a back drop all mount on a t-bar and tripod concept.

    was thinking if anyone has tried this method or has a better idea, basically its to setup for passport photo taking for my company staff pass at different site thus the need to hook up the fluorescent light tube.

    appreciate if anyone have got any idea or vendor to intro

    if it is only for head shot, a majong paper and a small slave flash will do.

    want something more fancy, get a (white or any color you want) mounting board from ARTFRIEND or FANCY PAPER.

    for how the set up looks like or how it works, just go to any minilab or digital lab to see how they set up for the passport photo.

    this set up is far cheaper, more compact and setting up faster then the mobile backdrop.

    Don't see why you would be at the mercy of available light. One main flash to illuminate the subject another slave behind the subject to illuminate the background.
