I've noticed that things like reflectors, softboxes, lighting, stands and such are costing an arm and a leg; and I wondered about making my own with such things as tin foil, white bedsheets, tracing paper perhaps.. and the odd 200w bulb, or even a security light... Anyone tried this, any good ? or am I better buying the proper gear ?
On a bit of a budget see, so trying to make it go the distance. If anyones tried this approach, the feedback/advice would be most welcome before I start my mini spend.
Oh, btw, anyone know where I can get a cheep greek style posing podium ?
