So I have seamless, I have a stand, and I just got an off camera flash set-up. My problem? I HAVE NO ROOM!!! I guess I could set up in the living room, but that would require lugging everything from the front of the house to the back. I'll have to try it out this weekend.
I wanted to play, but my DD wasn't into it. So, DH got in to try to motivate her. Still no go
This is the best I got. I've got to work on the position of the umbrella and the subject. I'm going to need LOTS of practice!!
CC isn't necessary but ALWAYS welcome!
1/100 f/4.0 100
1/250 f/3.2 100
This is the best of a pullback that I got. Sorry, I didn't make the flash fire and I had to bump my ISO really high just to get exposure (and a lot of help from PS)
It looks great for your first attempt! A little tip that a photog told me - the closer the umbrella/softbox, the softer your light will fall on your subject
Hope you have fun this weekend and your DD cooperates!

I think I would have had a set up already if it weren't for the fact that we are crammed in this little house as it is (thanks DH for adding 2 more couches on top of the 2 we had already in our living room lol). Before we even thought of moving back to the USA I was thinking "how am I ever going to get a home studio when living in such a small house?" We can't really afford much bigger either especially in this country. Where we are moving to, in Colorado, we can get something twice the size for the exact same price as we bought this house. So, now when we go house hunting, next autumn (yay!) a big studio/office is a must have for me! So glad I know what to look for now! So I know the feeling.
Very cute! I want to set up a studio space when we get a larger house but am intimidated. I LOVE how she clings to daddy in #1, and #2 is precious. You might try to tone down the magenta a tad, but I think the shots look good.
I enjoy seeing all the pullbacks, too. Very helpful.

Great job! I love how #1 really shows how much she loves her daddy, and the playfullness of #2 is great! Seeing kids interact with there parents, especially little girls with there Daddy's is just priceless!!!
Thanks for adding a shot of your setup! I am always curious how others do it and if I would ever have enough room. I already took over one of the spare bedrooms in our house as my "craft" room, maybe I can convince DH that I can take over another one for photo stuff and then get a good setup!
Let me just add that getting that ONE umbrella light set-up was a pain in my you know what! I had to go to the camera store 3 different times just to get my flash working with everything. I can't imagine what would have happened if I tried to peice it together from the internet. It was great being able to take all my junk up there and have them figure it out for me Now I know why those strobist kits are so well liked.
Any of you studio ladies, please chime in!! How many lights are 'needed' for a studio?
