What cross bars are you using?

no cross bar. I just use the paper's own internal cardboard. its pretty stiff. I don't think its really necessary anyway.

but I had to cut my paper down to 7ft because they wouldn't fit in my room at their stock length

If you could, 20x20 would be perfect... but 16ft wide, with 20ft of distance between you and the backdrop is good. About 10ft between you and the model, and 10ft between model and background = perfect

ah.... how I dream of that *sigh*

It's not the equipment but what you do with it. Nice work.

to a point yes, and thank you. but space can be a real limiting factor, period. not matter how nice your gear is.

all my nice L glass wont buy me a decent full body shot in my studio :(

Good job and I don't find this surprising at all; I've always liked your work.

I just have to add that I wish people could learn to read before they post, i.e. your gear is clearly a link in your sig. Lol. Always baffles me.

Good job!

Just to show some other limited space options, this was in a basement, & the space used would fit within a 8 X 10' room: Simple 2 Light Portrait Set-up

And this was a "No studio" setup: VERY simple "outdoor studio"

Awesome man. Your portraits are among my favorites around. They stand out. I've seen way too many portraits lately that have good light, but are just boring as hell.

Hi Matthew,
I saw your post here a while back and was blown away by your work. I mentioned you and the results you were getting in your small studio to Udi Tirosh of DIY Photography. I told him that you would be perfect to write a guest article. He just let me know that he did contact you and your guest blog is up on the site. I am so happy that it worked out. You are a truly gifted photographer.
Good luck to you in all your endeavors,
Regina
