I’ve been doing some research into setting up my own Photographic Portrait business, I had been concerned about the potential costs involved in getting the equipment. This was until I came across an article by Digital Camera World titled
“Home studio setup: 6 things every photographer needs”
The main things required are
- Main Light Source
- Hair Light (2nd light)
The article was accompanied by the following diagram, which demonstrates how little equipment is actually requires to set up a basic studio.
Although the above is a very basic studio set up, it has made me realise that it need not cost a fortune to set myself up to do portraits and photo-shoots, and that doing this on a self employed basis is a real possibility.
