Making of Home Photo Studio

» Posted by in Photo Equipment, Photography

Camera in a studioThe advantage of photographic work or hobby is that you can do it at home. This significantly reduces investment in this business. Of course, this requires that you have enough space. When you begin to deal with photography, the studio is not necessary.

Many things can be improvised. But if you want to be a professional photographer, taking pictures in your living room can be unprofessional, is not it?

Therefore, you should create your home studio. When you clear up a room or garage for this purpose, you need to add equipment. Here are the basic things that your studio should have:

Backdrop. Any good photographer knows that the best way to emphasize its model is the one- color backdrop that not distracting. For this purpose,  it is commonly used one-color big roll paper. It can be white, or in a color that suits you. If you do not have paper, a large piece of stretched canvas can be a good alternative for your home studio.

Light. Photography depends on what will be the light that falls on your model and whether you will be able to highlight what you want to show. Light is important as much as the camera because, without it, you cannot have clear photos. You can select continuous light or flashlight. It is important that they fit into your budget, and that you can set them to the desired location.

Light softeners. The sharp, direct light will give sharp shadows that sometimes you do not want on your photo. That’s why you need light softeners. It can be an umbrella or soft box, depending on what it is easier available and what it is easier to work with.

Doorbell. If your house is big or the studio is located in an isolated part such as a garage, you need a good doorbell that you’ll hear wherever you are. This way, you will always be able to hear your parties when they come, and you do not have to leave the job you are doing and await them behind the door. Wireless bells are simple to install, loud and with attractive design, and they are the best solution for your home studio.

Pieces of furniture. They will be used to place an object on them, or to place your model in a position that suits you. The best is that they are lightweight and that can easily be removed from the scene if you do not need them.

Framed works. If you want to make a good impression and show potential customers that you really know what you’re doing, and that you are dedicated to photography, you’ll put a few best photos in a frame and hang them on the wall, as your portfolio.

Computer. Today it is almost impossible to deal with a photograph without a computer, whether it is a simple transfer of pictures from your camera, or you need to edit them in a computer program. Once you have cleared an entire room to create a studio, then set one corner for that piece of equipment.

There is no need to overload your studio with things that would deprive your valuable space. You can always bring them from home. This is another advantage of a home studio. There are also disadvantages, but about them some other time.
