Thread: Basic Studio setup

  1. #1

    Default Basic Studio setup

    Hi all,

    Wondering what would be the basic equipment required to set up a photography studio & the costs? It would really be useful to have a list and the cost so I can estimate the budget range. Such as the umbrella, trigger and backdrop costs.

    #1, what is your intention for setting up a studio? if it is not for business, you posted in the wrong thread, try General, Reviews, Tech Talk

    #2, what you want to shoot with your studio? this will let us know what to suggest.

    I think you can budget around 5k for a basic but reliable setup.

    My humble setup, can't exactly remember the exact price but I got these for less than $5K. OK la, good enough for me so far though I bet am gonna be getting some higher-end lighting kit later but the D-Lite4 is bang for the buck! QFlashes are definitely good replacement for robust outdoor/compact lighting setup.

    So far this setup has served enough for me for in-studio & on-location shoots.

    • Elinchrom D-Lite 4 Kit - $1200
    • Elinchrom Skyport Universal Set - $390
    • Elinchrom Shoot Through Umbrellas (X2) - $50
    • Elinchrom Silver Reflective Umbrella - $30
    • Seamless Backdrop Paper Rolls (White + Grey) - $150
    • Backdrop Elevating System - $60
    • Bowens 6610 Lighting Stands (X2) - $170
    • Canon 580EXIIs (X2 - for outdoor no A/C stobing) - $1370
    • Canon Battery Packs (X2) - $500
    • White cum Silver Reflector (1.5m x 1m) - $60


    Hope this helps...
