    I want to see where everyone is shooting (extra room, basement, storage unit, warehouse, etc)

    After breaking up with my ex I moved back in with my parents, since it seemed like the logical thing to do...atleast until I finish schooling, I always meet people on location to do shoots, and now with the winter being here people aren't always excited to meet me in 30 Degree weather.

    I do have a basement available to me which is about 15' X 35 with 8 Foot ceilings, I want to make a setup kind of like Nor*cal with the white seamless backdrop.

    And also if you guys have a studio space that you use, how much do you pay for it a month?

    It isn't that bad, I'm just uncomfortable bringing people to my house.

    I guess if I did a seperate entrance to the basement, and put up a bunch of my work on the walls it would be more like a studio. I'll have to post up some exact measurements and pictures of my basement to get input to what I should do with it.

    And even if i had to rent a studio space, I'm sure I could get another photog to go halfes with me.

    i don't see how it's really an issue as long as you're comfortable with the person and they're comfortable with you.

    If you make it seem creepy... like "you should come over to my parents basement so i can take your pic :naughty: " then of course people are going to be weirded out.

    IF you're cool about it and make sure it's presentable, i don't see it as a problem.

    Dude that light stand is a recipe for disaster. That thing shaped like a V that I circled should be parallel with the floor, that is the position that will make your light stand the sturdiest and most resistant to fall (on kami)

    I take this:

    and convert into this by simply moving some furniture out of the way

    Or if I need some more space I use this:

    if i were in your shoes, i would take my stuff to wherever they are at. house calls or some shit

    seems like the best idea

    in sunny socal, i just use natural daylight: direct sun diffused by shoot-throughs or reflectors, shoot in shade or whatever and using fill flash offcamera
