This week I received a Heartland mail order catalog. I love looking at thr various close-outs for sail. In this issue there was a "portable photo studio for dummies" (as in the series of "_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ For Dummies" books). I have seen this for sale for about $70.00 on line and found it easy to pass up! But for $29.99 I decided to go for it!

It folds within its self into a attache like case, has 2 external pouches for the 2 quarts movie lights made onto table top tripods ain a smaller external compartment there is a small table tripod.

Here is a quick first shot with my new toy!

Hello Msantos

It is small thus compact for taking along. There are many places on the internet that tell you how to make a box with cut out sides from a cardboard carton or from pvc pipes and connectors or wood strips.

A four legged bridge table without the top can be used to drape a whice sheet for a light tent aswell.

Thanks all !

(it looks like this thread just may break the 2% reply rate)

The set came with 2 little table top tripods with 3 legs that spread out wide. Each table top tripod has a small movie like light housing a quartz 20 watt bulb (like a slide projector bulb) and a blue frosted diffuser in the front.

Not exaxtly a Irving Penn set up but okay!

Bill, I like the first image but the second looks over processed. Is that the look you wanted? Lots of posterization on my calibrated monitor.

I must confess, I am in a 12 step program for people addicted to posterizing picture.
