Studio Lighting Unplugged, Small Flash Techniques for Digital Photographers

Creator: Rod Deutschmann, Robin Deutschmann | Photography - 2014-12-26

If you can dream it, you can shoot it when you're a studio photographer. ... Let's take a fresh look at our house, at our home studio, and do something we've never done before: create a dramatic image that ... Cowboy Studio makes our favorite.

Publisher: Amherst Media

About this book
This lighting manual shows that successful studio photography does not require a warehouse-sized space brimming with expensive lights, Hollywood-style facades, and a half-dozen assistants making the client lattes. Rather, this guide shows photographers how to create studio lighting effects that range from clean and classic to highly complex and use a garage, spare bedroom, or even a backyard as their “studio.” The simple setups show that one to three small, inexpensive electronic flash units—along with budget-friendly stands, communication systems, and some do-it-yourself light modifiers—can be combined to create brilliant studio-quality images without the studio. Numerous sample shoots and plans provide clear instructions for taking control of any environment to create spectacular images.

    An Excellent Set Up At a Fraction of Pro System Costs

    If you're reading this review chances are like me you're a hobbyist. In the sense that we have studios in our home, we're not professionals but we love video editing and still photography.That said and if you agree, I think it's important to consider this kit in both relationship to the cost and comparisons to the exact same set ups - by pro lighting companies. So I did a bit of research trying to keep it apples to apples - the same two box lights and boom light, as well as the same wattage.The Norman 4 Mono light 3 soft box studio with boom sells for $3,395. The Smith-Vector, on sale is $999.000. I found others that like the above look much like this CowboyStudio set up but the costs range upwards of 6 grand - it's pointless to mention them all as I hope the point is made, if not blame it on my writing.So you get this kit for less than the tax you would pay for a professional lighting system.I now have two studios, both green screen and... 5/5 Peter Suslock (CT USA) - See all my reviews, July 14, 2013

    Extremely Satisfied

    After immense research, I decided to purchase this. I have a small studio in my home maybe 15ft by 10ft with one window. I purchased this item Tuesday night and I received it the following Monday. Shipped by UPS. There were no instructions or invoice in the bag so i decided to find the instructions on YouTube. There are a lot of videos on how to set it up. The first light box was a pain in the butt but then after I figured it out and it was a breeze. After I finished cleaning up my mess I found a little card in the pocket of the bag that said: for instructions please go to [...]. lol kind of found that too late. I was impressed by the carrying bag as well. You can't beat this quality and size of equipment for this price! I do not recommend this to a photographer who plans on traveling with it. It takes too much time to set up and their is too many pieces to bring this around. So, if you are planning to purchase this, you're going to have to keep it set up. I never purchase anything... 5/5 JenniferV - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    As an amateur and for the money - I can't complain!

    4/5 JC (Ohio) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 2275 Watt Digital Video Continuous Softbox Lighting Kit with Boom and Carrying Case (Camera) As an amateur photographer, I needed something that would help with taking studio shots of products that I manufacture and sell. This lighting group is set up in a permanent setting, so I don't have to tear it down to relocate to another area. I usually let the lights warm up a bit (about 10 minutes or so) so they are fully powered up and provide even lighting.If you're just starting out but want a quality lighting system that you can rely on, then I highly recommend this product. Putting everything together was easy enough if you just take a moment and read through the instructions and take your time during the assembly.My one complaint doesn't have anything to do with the performance, but rather the large graphics on the side of the hoods - it's not necessary.

    Let's make a few corrections

    I just received this bulb today, along with an Alzo 27 watt "Joyous" 5500k CFL bulb, also from Amazon. Both arrived in good condition.The two bulbs are not that much different in my mind, so that's pretty interesting in itself. Both say they are made in China.The Alzo's 5500K is definitely a whiter light than the Cowboy Studio's (CBS)5500K, and just about as bright as this one. This one costs twice as much as the Alzo. This one is also about an inch longer and wider.The information listed for this product is a little different on the box. The box says is equivalent to 225W, not 200. The box indicates a life of 8,000 hours, not 10,000. And the lumens on this one are stated to be 2600 on the box, rather than 2650 per above.The Alzo box (remember, it's 27 watts rather than CBS's 45 watts) says it has a life of 10,000 hours and lumen output of 1300.I prefer whiter light, so I like the Alzo color better, at this point.

    225 watt equivalent? Try 120 watt!

    I should have known better than to go off the seemingly random "equivalent wattage" ratings that companies put out, but I was sorely disappointed by the lackluster performance of this bulb. While the color temp seems spot on, the brightness is not even in the same realm as a 225 watt incandescent. I'd put it somewhere around 120 watt. This is a case of misleading advertising. But why rely on estimates when I can test this more scientifically?Base test: the CowboyStudio 45 watt bulbNext bulb: a 42.5 watt CFL bulb. This bulb is 2/3 stop BRIGHTER than the 45 watt CFL.Next bulb: 60 watt incandescent. This bulb is exactly 1 stop dimmer than the 45 watt CFL. Since 1 stop brighter is 2x the brightness, that should mean that a 120 watt incandescent would be the same brightness as this supposed "225-watt equivalent" bulb.Unfortunately I didn't have an actual 225 watt incandescent bulb to give you an exact apples-to-apples comparison, but... 2/5 J.

    Great, but doesn't last long.

    2/5 Brinnj - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 45W Compact Fluorescent CFL Daylight Balanced Bulb with 5500K Color Temperature for Photography and Video Studio Lighting (Camera) At first I thought this product was delightful. I used it with my light box, and it worked perfectly.Unfortunately, this bulb did not last me very long. After about 10 uses when unscrewing the bulb from the fixture, the metal end broke apart from the plastic of the bulb, breaking the wiring of the light, and rendering the lightbulb (and the fixture) useless. I had to pry out the stuck metal from the fixture in order to use it again... overall, I am very unsatisfied with the results of this purchase.

    Perfect for Dance, picture day, recitals and comps

    5/5 Scottsdale - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cowboystudio Photo Studio Portable Pop Up Changing Room/Dressing Room (Camera) I purchased this for my extremely modest child. It is perfect for us and paired with our rolling Dream Duffel we need nothing else for quick costume changes. Our Dream Duffel stool fits inside perfectly for the times when we need to keep clothes off less than clean floors. The dressing room fits inside our Dream Duffel tutu bag which clips securely to the outside of the rolling bag and frees my hands. My favorite part of this portable studio is how even I can fit inside the studio to help my child change into and out of challenging costumes.

    High Quality But Needs Instructions

    4/5 RedOnGray - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cowboystudio Photo Studio Portable Pop Up Changing Room/Dressing Room (Camera) This portable pop up room is perfect for my outdoor shoots.I have bought from Cowboystudio before on Ebay and always feel confident in my decisions to purchase from them. There is a continuous problem with lack of instructions with their items even though they have high quality products. You may have to figure some stuff out on your own. it took me an extremely long time fighting with this thing to get it folded back up, so if you buy one, please notice how it is packed before you pop it open, this may help you in being able to fold it back up. If information had been included on how to repack the thing, I would have give 5 stars. But it's very frustrating and difficult when you don't know how to fold it back up and you have to fight with it. It's also unproffessional in front of your clients to be fighting with it like you don't know what you are doing.

    Good value, but not the best.

    This product basically does the job, however it could be better.Very lightweight and portable. It folds together similar to a large reflector into a flat circle. It takes some practice to do so though. Watching youtube videos is highly recommended to learn how to do it. There are no instructions on how to fold the portable studio. The material is very black and impossible to see through when I first received it. However, after several uses, I've noticed that the black material on the walls of the product is very thin. It is easily damaged and torn. After several uses, you can start seeing thread coming off. It's similar to a very cheap, thin bed sheet.Another thing I do not like is the fact that there is no roof. The top is completely exposed and uncovered. This isn't usually a problem unless you are in an area with buildings surround you and there are possibly people looking from above.On the floor, however, has a black material floor... 3/5 Daren (Honolulu, HI) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
