We are big fans of home made lighting (see our studio in action here). I am more of a CFL kind of guy, and when I got our video studio up, I opted up for those small compacts florescents. But uber talent Joe Edelman shows that great results can be had with the old school florescents as well.

Joe build anything with simple florescents, from strip lights, to power banks and crazy ring lightish contractions. Of course, being a kick ass photographer does not hurt as well.

Using mostly 2 light fixtures mounted on a rail and 40 Watts florescents to set up his lights, Joe’s photography makes a hell of a point that photographs are not about expensive gear (take that KinoFlo). How-to video and sample imagery after the jump
