Home Studio Part 2

Window light and a LiteDisc reflector. In the previous blog, “Creating a Home Studio Part 1”, I described the basic elements that comprise a “studio” and went on to list some lighting scenarios. In this installment, and those to come, we’ll be covering some more detailed approaches to making your home studio work for you. As I pointed out in Part 1, WINDOW LIGHT portrait techniques supported working photographers from 1880-1925. Although that career may not be possible today, you can benefit from their approach and create wonderful images. It's not rocket science. The image...

WPPI Day Two

If yesterday was busy, today was a frenzy. In the Photoflex booth. Photo by Billy Pegram. With some pretty compelling keynote speakers at our booth, we saw a lot of traffic today. We started off with Greg Sargent and Billy Pegram, followed later with both Lee Morris and Patrick Hall of fstoppers.com, and ended with Michael Corsentino. Michael personally drew quite the crowd during his demonstration with the TritonFlash (a product with which he has recently become very familiar due to some pretty amazing location shoots over the past three weeks). Tomorrow we end with Blair Bunting and Ron...

Building a Home Studio PART 1

Every photographer dreams about having a studio, but do you really need one? Can you justify the rent? What you really need is the ability to produce professional quality photos without the added expense of a commercial lease. For less than the move-in cost of a studio, you can buy the equipment you need to take professional quality shots at home. If we adopt a more flexible idea about what a ‘studio’ is, we’ll find ourselves shooting more often and being pleased with the results. What makes a studio different than a garage?
