Am doing an event in a few days where people are going to bring their children in for 15 minute "mini" sessions to a place where I will have a background and lights set up.

The children will range from a few months to about 9, only one at a time. My original plan was to have two backgrounds set up, one on a table of some sort for the younger kids, and then another to the floor for the older ones.

I don't think I'm going to have enough space for that now, so might just have to do with the one background. I'm thinking of having two lights lighting the background, then one key light and maybe one for fill.

I don't really want to be moving lights around all day as it's a pretty tight schedule, and random as to who will come in (not like all babies, then all toddlers, etc)

If anyone can suggest anything that will make my life easier then I would be most grateful!

A set of apple boxes in different sizes. You can make steps or stack them.

That looks an interesting idea, not sure where I'd get some from though?

BH Photo, Adorama and most theatrical lighting suppliers. I think Amazon sells them also. You can get individual sizes or nesting boxes. They are a good investment for any studio. Lots of uses.

I'm based in the UK, I'll have a look on Amazon though.

Sorry, didn't know that. Amazon UK would be good. Try Calumet, too? Movie prop houses usually rent them as well.
