Phil, that was very cool. I was going to say awesome, but Case beat me to it.

For sure. I hope my garage sees some action like that someday.

FWIW check out Phil's other video's on his website. I think they are top notch.

Nice work as always Phil.

I'm in almost the same shape. My wife said she would model for me, but she always seems to have "more important" things to do. I'll never get rid of her so I got a compromise Ms. Plastic: I just got a wig manequin (head) and rigged the neck with quick change plate for one of my cheap tripods. I still try to practice with my wife whenever she gives me the chance, but it is nice to have "Heady" to try out things and get set-up so I can maximize my time with a live model.

Were did you get the mannequin?

I got it off eBay from one of the wig sellers. I could try to figure out who it was but they might not be on the US site (but it was made in China, even though it shipped from Germany). You can probably find them with the right search terms. Sorry...

FWIW I bought my mannequin from eBay.

I have a "full-size" one, and one thing I noticed was that they come in a really big box so shipping was a major issue for me.

While I could of purchased it a lot cheaper from overseas, by the time the shipping cost was added it was far cheaper to buy a (much dearer) one locally.

My wife found my mannequin head locally .... It was in a beauty shop, where she goes to have her hair done. She told me it was about $50 (US).

Just killed a few hours going through this thread. I see a lot of great things, so, kudos to all of you.

Setting up a smallish studio myself. I want to eliminate stands in there but after going through I'm torn between going wall mounted boom like Mtimber or overhead like Duff. Overhead almost appeals to me more, however, I'd like the most flexible system. The space is 12' wide, 24' long and 8' tall. I know the 8' tall will kill me but it's what I have to work with. Any ideas?

Not shown is a large client conference room, full kitchen and a few storage rooms for 'stuff'. about ~3,000 square feet. All in all a pretty comfortable space though smaller than I've typically had in the past. THere's only been a few occasions in the last few years where I wished for or needed more space.

My answer for most photography questions: "it depends...'
