We're looking to put together a basic photo studio setup at the office. Any suggestions on lighting, etc? We already have the camera.
We'll use it to shoot our own work and to shoot small make work projects.
yeah dude hook yourself up with some profoto d1s. buy the kit, get two heads, stands, umbrella, case, etc. i just got a a 500 air kit and have been getting excellent results
don't skimp on the lights, youll save yourself endless hours of color correction.
The kit at Steve Kaeser looks like a great starting point. Thanks M_C_P!
Steve kaiser kits vs profoto is like yugo vs rolls royce.... there is a lot in between
Before you buy a lot of stuff... think about your environment... is the studio space large or small ... are you shooting tabletop artwork and products or head tp toe models on a pure white sweep?
Need more info ... but I can give you very specific advice
For shooting artwork on a tabletop results are much more dependant on light modifiers and placement and angles thsn brand of lights
For any critical color work I highly recommend using an xrite macbeth color checker and resjoot a test shot evrry time you change lighting so you can batch correct your color balance in post...
how much $ you got? start there....
