Yesterday I read a classified ad for someone selling off their entire studio. I didn't want the camera, but I bought his lights and backgrounds for US$2000. Except for the backgrounds, EVERYTHING fits into the bags and boxes shown.
I was in a hurry and just threw all this out to take a quick picture. Here's what I got for my money (reading along the back wall):
Background stand (not fully extended and it could go another foot or so wider.
four canvas backgrounds (the grey is two sided)
Photographic printed vinyl background
Paper Backgrounds: White, white, Thunder Gray, Studio Black, Studio Black SuperWhite, Thunder Gray, Digital Green
Three more vinyl backgrounds with some sort of image on them
Digital Green vinyl Background
Black Background Case that extends to longer than the longest background
6 8-foot black light stands, three of a heavier quality than the others
Heavy silver light stand with light boom attached and counterweight (light and umbrella described below
3 silver light stands of varying heights and quality.
2 Fresnel spots (mounted on the stands)
On the floor:
Umbrella with white interior (it's mate is on the light boom)
Kit bag (for storing the fresnels
Trunk for carrying the Lowel DPs
2 50cm x 50cm soft boxes (folded in their cases)
4 Lowel DP quartz lights
3 barn doors (extra panels in the trunk)
2 barrel shaped light shapers (next to lights, I don't know their names)
1 Lowel dichroic filter (apparently gives a sunlight hue to the Lowels)
4 spare bulbs
Mess of extension cords
3 Britek PS 150 lights (2 on floor, one on boom)
1 Britek BB 100
Case for carrying the Briteks
More extension cords and a mess of sync cables
Pieces parts for adjusting the capacities and functions of the light stands
Bags for holding all the light stands, background stand, boom, and canvas backgrounds
SP Systems 5-in-1 reflector
Fog Machine (to left of reflector)
My wife says "You bought a fog machine too? Don't you have one already?" "It was extra, Babe, how could I refuse?"
Did I get screwed?
