Default My Basement Indoor lighting Studio

I just upgraded my indoor Photo Studio
I picked up a $ 10.00 halogen light with stand WoW almost broke the Bank
However , NO expenses were spared building it
$ 10.00 Halogen light
$ 1.00 black art Paper
and some house hold items ( Tape, Empty card board box )
and I moved the studio from my work shop into the Basement Den
NOW my secret is out

I thought I would have a little fun tonight

Fred, $10 for that light and stand not a bad buy. Agree with Bob, nice capture on the tulip.
Come summer you might pick up a styrofoam cooler, as big as you can get (keeping in mind the $10 limit) and mount it onto light stand keeping good circulation around the light. Bounce the light around inside, and you have a dyi softbox.

Had any chinooks yet or is winter still holding on?

The styrofoam cooler is a good idea and I like your studio Fred

And no Chinook ... yet ... but we are moving from -15c today to 8c on Sunday (at least I hope).

Very creative Fred. Thanks for showing what's possible without spending a mint. And ditto on the tulip.

That's great! Nothing like a little ingenuity.

I looked at building a dyi softbox . It can be done for cheap.
"My next project"
Not too many Chinooks this winter . Unusually COLD this year
If the forecast is correct it going up to 12 C today NICE

ramcewan . I used a 12-50 IMO a GREAT lens and fits to what I need
12mm for Landscapes . Macro for close ups
Its mainly on my EPL-5
I use my FT 70-300 for critters and Birds


The Tulip was in Macro Mode
