Alex, what are you using to mount your backdrop? I don't see any stands.

Thanks...Al

Hi Guys ...

I need something, Just not sure what it's called, a drop pin or something ??

Up to now, whenever I get my boom out it's a love-hate affair with it.

When I put my strobe on the pin, no matter how tight I try and do it up, gravity takes its toll and the whole strobe / softbox combo rotates finding it's own centre of gravity.

I seem to recall that I saw here that the solution was some form of pin that fits to the end of my boom, and the strobe (and softbox) assembly "hangs" from that ??

Did I understand correctly ?

The next point was, again if I recall correctly, was that there were TWO different ones you were talking about.....Which one do I want ??

Thanks,

Austen.

That's not as small and humble as mine...
I just got the black velvet backdrop and have only started experimenting with light placement, also have a backdrop that I painted myself. Have done a few family portraits for my extended family, they are happy enough...

IMHO the E700 is the better option
read what J Kacey wrote about raising lowering ! in that one thread you linked to

also those pics the boom is in a low position seems the F830 has angle limits when boomed at a upward angle ?
also you will have to readjust that knuckle all the time if moving up or down

the idea of the pin is that your strobe hangs and now is controlled just like it is upright but its upside down :) you can use the lights locking lever to adjust angle and rotation
the f830 seems like a cool setup to kinda lock out a light at strange angles to the side etc. or use it to lock down a monitor or something at a angle you need etc..

I will probably have the smallest space of all. The rooms look great. After setting up and taking down in my garage, I purchased an enclosed 7x14 trailer and am working on the conversion to a mobile studio. I do most of my work on site so this will also make it easier to transport.

Still have work to do on it and will post photos when complete. I recognize the limitations but plan to do a wraparound backdrop configuration with black walls and ceilings. Plenty of length for lighting and Speedlight mounts to provide back lighting as required. Should work for singles or even couples in various situations.

This is a great thread and I have already gained some ideas on it.

Thanks to all for sharing--large and small.

450 sq ft. may not be the smallest studio, but when you consider that my house is the same size, ummm....it's pretty small!

It's all what you do with it that counts. And what you've done with it is very nice. In fact, some of the more memorable images I've seen here.


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

Thank you!
Zack Arias said something to the effect, the smaller your space, the more cursing you do. That being said, I curse a lot in my studio :)

Don't try to confuse me with the facts, my mind is already made up.
