The greater part of us who’ve been nibbled by the “Photograph Bug” ultimately arrive at where we need to move our pictures to a higher level and get some studio representation lighting. However, there is one likely trap…
Great lights cost a pack!
We realize that even the most essential picture lighting arrangement will need somewhere around three lights, however shazaam great ones are much more than we need to (or can) spend. It’s not difficult to spend more than 2,000 dollars – simply on a three light studio representation lighting framework.
Thus, we end up paying some modest imitation brand. We figure they are adequate for the present and we’ll improve ones later. (At the point when we have more cash to contribute.)
Consider it, do you truly figure you will EVER return and improve quality lights?
In reality, YOU WILL! However, not on the grounds that it is all the more monetarily helpful. No, you’ll wind up purchasing the more costly ones since you will before long understand that the modest lights simply will not do the work, aren’t as effective and continue to separate. Or then again just aren’t filling in as publicized.
All in all, they are an aggravation in the patootie to use…so you end up not utilizing them and they lounge around get-together residue. Your all out speculation was squandered cash. Furthermore your photograph schooling endures.
What to do?
At the point when the opportunity arrives to begin getting your own studio representation lighting framework, purchase the most flawlessly awesome you can purchase. In the event that you should, spend your entire wad of money on just one light!
Figure out how to utilize it well, use reflectors to bob light into your subject and supplant the other two lights. When you’ve completely dominated ONE light (and set aside some cash) purchase a subsequent one, etc.
I’ve seen one light (and reflectors) lighting a whole picture set and copying a 5 light framework. One great light utilized well, is superior to a three light framework not utilized by any means.
Purchasing the best quality – ALWAYS – pays off eventually, especially in photograph gear. Your lights will last you years, assuming that not many years and will be a delight to work with and to claim. Take a stab at building your studio picture lighting framework this way…you’ll be happy you did.
