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.

    A solid purchase, even for pros.

    As a photographer with over 30 years experience, I can tell you that these lights are simply awesome. There have been many reviews from what I can only assume are drooling morons about the socket quality, the stands quality, the low light levels. Guess what? They are $60.00 bucks, not $1,500.00 like my main set!PROS:The Stands are of a thinner tubing than the $1,500 dollar variety, yes, and of a pot metal construction (not aircraft grade aluminum) with lower quality plastic clamps and adjusters (not machined and polished aluminum) HOWEVER... they are most certainly sturdy for light stands and absolutely useable for what I can see as a very long life (if you're not a tool!)Also, the light fixtures themselves are very sturdy AND accommodate the included bulbs very well.As this is a continuous light system and not strobes, I have used them for studio lighting along with 2 softboxes. The light level is strong and clean, with no flickers or other... 5/5 kateTaylor™ (Manhattan, New York) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Functional and Durable

    I was looking for a portable background support system to use at home as well as on location to do some portrait photography work. I looked at several models and read many reviews, but could not decide on one. There were some models where the support bar would sag under the weight of the fabric or paper.I asked my brother (a fellow photographer) if he knew of good system. He suggested Cowboy Studios. I perused their website and came across a model that appeared to be sturdy and well priced (under $100). I knew which one I wanted...the Cowboy Studios Premium Background Support System (901). I did a search on Amazon and came up with several different models. I searched on "CowboyStudio backdrop 901" and was able to find the system.This heavy duty 10 ft crossbar studio background support system came in a carrying case and shipped in a box.

    Good Stand, Damaged Travel Bag

    3/5 Andrew Bertke - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Cowboystudio 20 Ft Wide, 9 Ft High Background Backdrop Stand with Detachable Crossbar and Complete with Two Carrying Cases (Electronics) I like this stand because it is solid. My last stand had a telescoping cross bar, and at some point it was bent a little bit. This made it difficult to collapse the cross bar to fit in the travel bag. The cross bar in this stand comes in solid sections that I screw together to made it the width that I want. There is no way that these sections are ever going to bend, short of a tornado or a circus strong man. I also like the spring cushioned stands.My one complaint with this product, and the reason I gave it three stars instead of five is that the travel bag that came with the stand is damaged. One of the clips is broken (see the photos I included in this review). How can I get an exchange for just the bag without going through the hassle of returning the whole stand?And for anyone who needs​ instructions to put this together (it can be a tiny bit confusing), the instructions are easy to find on Cowboystudio.com., February 16, 2016

    Still thinking about it

    I came from a DIY background stand into this item. The cost between making my own to purchasing this one is negligible. For what I've spent between making my own and the purchase of this one I could have purchased a better quality set. At the time of making my own background stand I did not know how far I wanted to go with portraiture, making my own seemed ideal. That was a year ago.This set does not have AC (air column) control. When you loosen it, it will drop.The top pin threads are not standard for any photographic equipment. I doubt it will hold anything extra any ways. I've put 2 king size sheets and a 9x12 drop cloth of 8oz canvas on it. It held but I was pushing the limits of the center bar. The stands themselves did fine under the weight.The bag is a bit short overall but does contain all the pieces. It does double as a backdrop bag. I'll stuff my small backdrop and clamps into it once I've stored the stands.If you... 3/5 brian - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    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.

    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.
