I just happened upon getting a couple shots like this while getting some shots for ebay. I think these would fall under lowkey, but yet, the subject is so vauge.

And this is my ghetto fabulous studio. $0, and a little bit of mcgyvering. Ignore the clutter. I made a big mess making room.

But then again... They are rather illuminated at the same time.

Super, Wes! Thanks for showing us the whole shebang. A Peavy amp, eh? Do you know anything about the Yamaha 4416 16-track digital recorder? My hubby bought one a couple years ago and on page 80 of the manual we get to "turn the unit on." We have a video we both watched and hewanted to take some classes but no one offers them. So he uses his little cassette tape 8-track still.

Nope. Sorry hon. I don't personally know a lot about the recording equip. I got this behemoth to keep up with my friends when I was first started learning to play. Nowadays, I play accoustic. I shoulda saved myself a lotta money, and time lugging the behemoth around.

very cool....good job with the lighting, i see you were fully in control...

now, you're shooting a huge subject...so it'll be tough to get light on it, but not the background...but i think you could do it...

i have an idea too...try turning the middle lamp off...see wat that does

well done setting it up...it's almost as low budget as mine lol (i owned everything i used for mine already)

Then its exactly as low budget as yours All I did was do a little scroungin through the rat packing here. If McGyver was real, his name would be Wes I ain't kiddin neither :shock:

Oh yeah I forgot a very important part of that too. I was shooting with a flash. I sticky tacked a little square of paper over my flash to soften it up and bring some light downwards.

My hubby loves your studio (I had to show him the Peavy - his is much older, as he is probably much older than you!) and had to laugh in appreciation of your setup.
