Building A Set 101

For me one of the questions when seeing a photograph in an interesting interior is often how did they find the house, how did they get permission to shoot there and how did they squeeze all the lighting gear inside.

Photographer Mark Wallace shows how it’s done. They don’t go looking for a house, they build a small set out of a few pieces of wood. Mark gives us the full walk through of a set he build for a recent book cover shoot. Everything that is not in the frame is one big don’t care, which makes the set building way easier than it sounds.

This clip is the first of two parts, so check out Mark’s channel for the follow up next week.
