Studio shots without studio
Probably this is not a new method for those without a studio, but I would like to share with you who are in the same boat as me.
I am beginner and I don't have any reflectors, studio lights, lightboxes I don't even have an external flash. But I wanted to try isolated shots, which require lots of light, from 2 sides at least.
Because I'm the thinking one, I came up with the idea to not use a single light instead put everything in shadow on large white paper(A1-A0 size), this way the harsh shadows disappear and the "light" is diffused. Of course I can shoot only objects and I need to use slow shutter speeds, but it's working.
So if you would like to shoot isolated ones, without any lights, try this one.
I hope this is helpful for the newbies like me. But if you know better solutions that are almost free of cost I would like to hear and learn it.
