    Hi guys
    Id like to improve my photography skills so interested to know what setups people have at home. DIY? Purchased a kit? Can you take a photo of your setup? Etc
    Thanks

    I have one like that however white balance is horrible because of the cheap lights. Of course you can do a custom white balance but that gives to much of an ice cold effect.

    I prefer to use this setup: so daylight and bouncing light back:

    This one is from the box (steel is to orange/pink)

    And this one is using the daylight technique

    Great website.
    I hate make pictures with red background. This is difficult

    As I have no photography skills, my setup is usually an iPhone and the sky. ;)

    Always enjoy the true photog photos though, so keep 'em coming.

    That's just the iPhone getting confused. It worked well. See my new thread.

    to much light will put glare on a photo.

    In my expierience its extremly difficult to get good pics from vintage speedmasters with hesalite glass, because of the reflections in the domed glass.I take most of my pics in the lightbox with daylight on a sunny day ( morning or evening sun ) and no artificial light source.
