mtimber - you need to advice me! Your studio looks amazing, very neat.

I'm just starting up with studio photography and i've got a small bit of space, which you can see from the thread here; https://photography-on-the.net …read.php?t=1237​281&page=2

Any advice would be appreciated!

First check your length, that is the most important factor.

But there are plenty of ideas here.

You might also want to leave your garage door usable, that way you can shoot outside into the garage if you need to. :-)

Ingenious, I have a space that is 4 meters by 10 meters but discounted it as too narrow, but I make that 13ft wide; so after seeing your set up especially those neat boom brackets?

Only suggestion I would make is to use Nylock bolts, use the domed head variety. Nuts have a habit of unwinding!

Just out of interest and I did read all the pages [maybe missed it] what lights are you using and what wattage?
Just interested, as I hve my 3 lights aalready and can't afford nor really want to change them.

It looks like a lot of work to get to this level of detail ?

I am using Elinchrom Bxri's, 2x 500's and 2x 250's.

This studio has already paid for itself, with corporate portraiture and small product photography. :-)

Took a bit of work, but was definitely worth it.

Are you still using your studio? How is it working for you?

Hello :-)

I am still using it, it is very good for talking heads videos and portraiture headshots as well as small product work, I do obviously need more space, but it is something that I use on a commercial basis.
