Hello,
I've been building this for some time now. Since I'm saving for good studio lighting I decided to experiment with cheap materials and items you can usually get at the hardware shop. Just to understand light before I get into more serious stuff. What do you think of these portraits? I also add pictures of my setup :)

Any feedback appreciated.


1. Self-portrait with a shoot through umbrella as a main light and a little softbox on the left as an accent light. 1/125s ISO200 F3.5 28mm
