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.

    These are what you want.

    Wireless triggers come in two types, the super cheap generic ones and the crazy expensive PocketWizards. These trigger/receivers are excellent and work great. They are much better than the cheap ones I've tried and so far just as good as the PocketWizards I've tried. Range is not a big issue for me, I've not hit the limit of these Cowboy Studio ones. Honestly, if you exceed the range on these you better be finding a bigger light source than the Speedlight your probably trying to trigger. The wireless is pretty robust as well, I triggered strobes with these through two walls with no problem. The build quality is better than the generic guys but maybe a hair less than the PocketWizards. Doesn't matter though you can buy yourself about 10 of these for the price of two PocketWizards. So break them, loose them, blow 'em up or whatever and never worry about it. They're built well enough to not give you false pops too.

    Seems to work great and more economical than alternatives

    I freaked out at first when I saw the PC sync cable that comes with this set. I don't have a PC sync cable port for any of my gear. But I tried it out anyway and it works great anyway. You do not need to use the PC sync cable at all if you don't want to.Basically you stick the transmitter into the camera hotshoe and attach the receiver onto the flash. Then power up the flash and use it in Manual mode to set the strength (e.g., 1/4 strength). Make sure batteries are fully charged and inserted (transmitter will light up if charged, if not, replace the 23A 12V inside; the receivers use 2 AAA batteries each), and that the transmitter and receiver are on the same channel.Take a test shot. If it's too bright or dark, adjust exposure compensation/flash compensation and/or flash strength until it's just right. Then you can fire away without having to re-adjust!I bought this set in case one of the receivers breaks; that way I don't have to order another... 5/5 Protoplasm - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    READ THIS REVIEW BEFORE BUYING SUPPLIES OR ATTEMPTING INSTALLATION--Unfortunately I didn't read any reviews before trying to install this. All other reviewers are correct that the instructions are complete garbage. And my husband (the installer) looked at the reviews and said, "Wait, this is for photographers and there aren't any better pictures than these???" And he was right. Thank heavens my daughter's father-in-law is a better handyman, so they installed it one Sunday afternoon.First, don't worry about getting pipes for each paper roll. You only need them if you are using different widths of paper. The instructions suggested aluminum pipe, which my husband thought was WAY too heavy so we went with indoor/outdoor PVC. I got one for each roll, but since I hung two 107" rolls and one 86" roll, I only needed one pipe for the 86" roll. The expanders work just fine on the paper tubes that come on the Savage seamless paper. And for the other, I... 5/5 W. Davis - See all my reviews, September 11, 2016

    Time and space saver

    I recently installed this unit to the ceiling joists in my studio (works on walls or ceiling). It holds up 3 rolls of 9 foot wide seamless paper. I love it. First, it takes only seconds to lower one background and raise another. Second, not big heavy rolls to lug around. Third, it saves floor space (no awkward stands required) and is much more stable than floor stands, which can tip and crash to the floor if you aren't careful, especially if working alone. Fourth, my paper stays in much better shape, with less tearing, wrinkling and wear & tear. I bought some thin pieces of wood lathe at Home Depot, (8' long X 1/4" thick X 1-1/4" high) and stapled them to the end each roll of seamless. This gives me a nice straight edge I can pull to lay out the paper and keeps it flat. It also provides just a little weight to the paper so it unrolls straight down instead of curling. The plastic chain and sprocket drive works great and eliminates the need to ladders or step stools.I like... 5/5 Louis B. Dina (Birmingham, AL) - See all my reviews, September 21, 2010
