Studio lighting for beginners
I read over time many threads regarding studio lights.... Many beginners in stock photography wonder what kind of lights others contributors use? some photographers use expensive lights and big studious other makeshift studios in the corner of their room. Not many contributors are willing to invest large sums of money in lights from the from the beginning....
I want to tell you about my low budget around $290 light setup that i obtained good results:
2x Excella 80w flashes with tripod attachments
2x low cost 1.9m tripods
2x white umbrellas (one 108 cm and one 80 cm)
1x 35/35 Excella cm softbox
1x wireless camera transmitter and two receivers.
1x homemade white paper stage (around 1.5/1 m).
Course i use this setup only for objects shoots and in my opinion whit very good results.
What i trying to say is for a very low budget beginner a $250 -300 flashes kit is is enough to generate competitive photos for microstock industry.
