Once photographers take the big step forward of moving their lighting off camera, a whole new world of possibilities opens up to them. Those possibilities can only be fully realized if you have the equipment you need to control your light. Unfortunately, photographic light equipment can be prohibitively expensive for the hobbyist. However, light is light, no matter how expensive your modifiers, and there are countless ways to get the same or nearly the same look as pro equipment, for a fraction of the cost.
Home Studio Photography compiles an invaluable collection of tutorials, quick tips and step by step instructions to building your own home studio on a shoestring budget. Not only is this book a goldmine for the starving student, the skills it teaches are valuable for any photographer who wants to spend their money wisely, or needs to modify the light when they haven’t got exactly the gear they need with them at the time.
