I've got a home studio set up in the spare bedroom. It's done on the cheap, as photography is just a hobby for me. Other than the camera and tripod, everything in the studio is makeshift. The lights are halogens from Home Depot; the backdrops are from Jo-Ann Fabrics; the reflectors are poster board with aluminum foil taped to it.
Here are some photos from a photo shoot with with a friend.
All the shots are done on either Ilford XP-2 Super or Kodak T400CN -- both are C-41 black & white film. The camera is a 25 year old Minolta X-700 with 50mm, 85mm, and 135mm lenses. Other than adjusting the levels and cropping, none of the photos were altered.
I'd love to hear from any photographers out there that use makeshift equipment, or at least started out like MacGyver
before they spent the money and upgraded. If anyone has any questions about the shots, just drop me a line.
