Default New requisition

I thought I was safe after completing a successful LBA anonymous program...
It only turns into another venue.
I just won the bid on two of these, complete with extra 500 and 1000 watt bulbs.

9ft roll around stands.

Ha ha - you know you can easily hide lenses but I hate to think what your wife is going to say when she finds these decorating her lounge - although I can imagine it will be

Ok, now a seamless white backdrop, a few more lightboxes and you are set.

Strange how photography can become such a runaway hobby.

"Thats the way my boss described it when at the end of a meeting I asked if I could stay and take some pictures of the surrounding area."

Jehan, you have no idea how right you are!
Thanks Wizz.
Kev, you're right. I'm still working on a good story, I have maybe a week to get it together!
Ronny, I have several backgrounds, a 10'X20.5' triple stand background support system, a couple umbrellas the Britek strobe, a couple odball stands and several light heads I'm working on. I als have a 22"x36" softbox I'm almost done making along with the 16x16" softbox for the 540 flash. Oh, and I just picked up a Manfrotto 44 to 80" boom arm. So, now all I need is something to photograph.

GW, you thought you were successfully cured of LBA through their 10-Step program. The disease has obviously mutated into a new strain called called LBA II (just announced by the CDC) which is not fatal but equally contagious and worrisome called Lighting Buying Addiction II. No cure is available as yet due to its recent emergence.

Better late than never... sorry, Jehan. I just caught your reply.
You're partially correct, recent studies have shown that it can indeed be fatal... depending on spouse's reaction when foreclosure notices appear in the mail and said afflicted patient can't explain what happened to mortgage payments!

Okay GW, there will soon be a van pulling up to your house, and several very nice men dressed in white will escort you to a padded room where you will not be able to harm yourself. This if for your own good, you must understand.............

But seriously, that's a very nice acquisition. When do you decide the garage is too small, and you need to buy an adjacent lot and build a studio?
