    Humble start to a home studio

    I wanted a place dedicated to small "studio" kind of thing.
    Its nothing more than a sheet, a curtain rod, and a table underneath.

    Next is some wireless flash gear and a softbox.

    My daughter-in-law started out pretty much the same way, though she takes portraits and has chair/s for people to sit on. She now has a photo business, takes portraits of families and kids, weddings, dance school portraits, videos.... Though her studio has grown a bit in size, (and she has all the proper lighting/flash) she still uses this same type method in her home, as well as taking it with her to the recitals and such, has different colour sheets.... It's a great start!

    My first set of wireless triggers showed up yesterday.
    But I needed a second softbox/thingy for the second flash.



    BTW; the elcheapo CowboyStudio triggers? they kinda rock.

    Was in Aldi today. Spotted some boom microphone stands and thought 'I can do something with these'.
    Found some bolts, a touch of (crude) welding and *Ding*

    If you want a bigger soft box (bigger box = softer light) try using a foam Vege box from the markets. Cut a hole in the short side, and insert flash head, whack a white scrim on it and you've got a pearler for next to nix!

    Edit:
    Love your boom mic flash stands!
