You Don’t Need a Studio to Look Like You Have a Studio.

What most photographers won’t tell you is that “studio” shots are usually done in their living room.  No shame in this, in fact I am going to help you get an awesome home studio.

Backdrop/Light Stands

You don’t have to get special stands for your backdrops, you can totally use the same stands you have for your Lights.

Seamless Paper

If you are debating between canvas and paper, you are not alone. I have thought may times throughout my career that I should be using canvas, Mostly because it is more expensive, so I assume it is better.

I don’t think it is better. If you have a studio backdrop that will stay up 24/7 in a dedicated studio, canvas may be the option for you. If you plan on being a bit more mobile, paper is usually a good option, especially if you don’t need the full Size rolls.

What Are Your Tricks?
