Default Ok, I build my studio what now..... lights/filters etc....


I have made a little studio for myself.
Working space is about 2.5 mtrs x 4 mtrs (floorspace in a much larger room).

I have a backdrop of 2.00 mtrs x 1.50mtrs which will hold several fabrics ranging from white to black.

I have 2 halogeen 300W lamps (construction lamps), on movable tripods, ranging from 50cm to 2.50mtr in height.

The questions:
What should I buy as fabric.
I was thinking about velours kind of material for the warm look of the material.

Should I light my model direct or via reflectors (which I'm planning to build).

Is it desirable to get filters before the lights, like gold, red etc.

Should I still use my flash on the camera.
I thought to use the lights to eliminate shadows and shoot without flash. 2x300W should be enough ?

Hope some people can help.
