I'm now very tempted to DIY a home studio for portraiture use. Has anyone actually setup one successfully at the comfort of their homes? I've been reading here and there for tips on setting it up, but most of them focus on still-life photography, since the things are going to be smaller and manageable. i don't need one because i have a pure white tabletop located near the window, which gives me very natural light on the item itself.
what i need now is a step by step (localised!) guide on how to DIY a studio for shooting portraits.. from making softboxes to reflectors, backdrops or cheap lights etc etc.. any advice?
