Quoting WRMGmommy:OK for now this is my studio. I have to use my living room whenever I want to take photos. We are eventually going to build me a studio. We have a HUGE garage/barn that we are going to make into a studio. I want to make sure I am good enough before we do that. OK so here is the situation with this living room - notice the tray lighted ceiling with the wall color in the highest point. This makes it a challenge sometimes, and there are windows all around that you cannot see, so if I want natural light all I have to do is open up all of the dark blinds. I have dark blinds, so light doesnt get through when I want to shoot with my lighting. I have alien bees and I love them!
don't have a photo yet as the stuff hasn't arrived yet, but i'm jumping from profoto to alien bees, i can't afford profoto stuff anymore and i can furnish a whole studio, accories stands and everything, for what i can sell my 2 profoto heads, power pack, and beauty dish for! plus i have no where to set everything up yet, which is why i'm getting battery packs because it'll mostly be location for now. glad to see another AB fan here!
I would love to own a studio one day. I'm just trying to start my own photo business. Well I do have an empty room I could probably use but don't have the stuff I need for a studio. Do you moms out there know of a place, some were to buy professional stuff for a studio cheap? I love photography and have so much passion for it but have really no clue of what stuff I need for it. I mean stuff as in lighting, what kind? What kind of backgrounds do you moms use? I currently own a Nikon Cool Pix L100, it was the one my hubby was able to afford, I do like it but I'm hoping I'll be able to buy a more professional one wen I start a business. Is that a good camera to start with? Any help will be so appreciated. Sorry for all the long questions. :)
Where do you learn about and purchase studio equipment? I'm just starting out...finally got a good camera! yay! Photography has always been my passion, I just wish I knew where to get started. I'm getting ready to take a bunch of courses at the college...
I am all new to photography too. I didn't have time to go to school, so the best place I went to was Youtube Photography tuturials. They have been the best. I would take notes and write down all the equipment they have and that are useful. So far spend over 1,000 on everything. Thanks God my husband is supportive with allt his. And I also went to barnes and noble to read up on photography too. It's been a year and loving all my equipment too. My 3rd floor apartment is empty and I use the space to do all the photos shoots, thanks to my wonderful inlaws. I will share a photo as soon as I have another shoot.
i would like to start my own photography business once i get good at it but i would probably do the pictures alot outside b/c its natural and beautiful. to me it brings out such a beautiful picture.
I dont have a picture either, as mine is my livingrooom as well.I do location shoots to. But I have my lights, background poles/stands broked down in the hall closet( i bought a 9 ft by 15ft set with a white n black cotton background on amazon for like 120 bucks) It's a travel set, I bought it for the simple breakdown...so all my gear is in my closet and my cameras,lenses,flashes,filters etc are in my bedroom in my wardrobe thing. I live in a 3 bedroom 2 bath trailer, and have a 2 yr old so my 3rd room is small and has exercise equipment in it, my fiance said he wants to add on for me just for studio purposes, but im ok with using my living room for now...hes awesome!!!
my studio as of right now is outside or my living room!! i am starting out and when i get $ for my projects, I am buying equip for my little 'buisness'. I am going to remodel my little storage build out back when tax time rolls around lol
we have a big back porch and was thinkin about havin one out there for now but i do alot outside atm !
