I love it, it has been fistic, and is easily portable!

That's what I'm wondering from an "all-things-considered" practical perspective.

Had another 'phone call from the builder today, at this stage it looks like we're getting close to finalising the new house plans with the garage (8.5m * 6.0m (28.8ft * 19.68ft)) doing double-duty as a studio.

I could probably get away with having the ceiling painted black, but I fear it might be asking a bit much of Mrs Austen to have the walls painted black :rolleyes:.

Accepting that grey won't be as "light-absorbing" as black, it also won't be as "light-reflecting" as white............

Austen.

Not to sound callous but unless Mrs Austen will be shooting there too, what does it matter what you do with your own thing?

Put up some hooks and hang black theatre drapes. Paint the walls white. Then the misus wil be happy and you have flexibility between light spill control or not.

On a totally unrelated note, on Gumtree (our equivalent of Craigslist) on Friday there was an Elinchrom Dlite4-IT set advertised for $450 ONO.

Trouble was, it was in Sydney, a couple of hour plane-trip away.

By a great stroke of luck Girl-Child, who lives in Sydney, had planned a quick trip home for the weekend, home Saturday AM, back to Sydney Sunday PM.

The lights were located in the CBD...She works in the CBD.

A couple of 'phone calls, a couple of TXT's, $400 is indeed ONO...........

Wife picks Girl-Child up from the airport....."Why did you bring your big suitcase home, you're only here for 24 hours ?"

There went my attempt to "smuggle" the new gear home :D :D :D

Set is in *MINT* condition *Woo-Hoo Emoticion*

Now a couple of reflectors and deflectors and that should have my "I can't get my backgrounds white" problem solved !

Austen.



I just want to take nice photographs of people.

Wow Heath, you're not kidding - that's a tiny space when you factor in that you also do all of your living in it.

Cool setup, though. Giving me some ideas on how I can do something similar.

I could not believe it, but I was actually able to get a full body shot. Now I just need to keep practicing and playing with light.

Some great looking spaces in this thread...here's mine:

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.

Can we switch tripods? I'll give you my Benro if I can have that electrical one. ;)
