home flash studio

Hi FolksWith the weather is Scotland being dire for a couple of months now i have put together a small "table top" studio.I have never been into studio photography and it is something i have been meaning to get acquainted with for some time now.This little table studio i have set up is a fantastic way of getting familiar with studio lighting but at a very cheap price.    The basics of my studio is rather simple really, 3 YongNuo YN-560 III Flashgunsand a Yongnuo YN560-TX Wireless... continue reading
