I need advice, please. I am setting up a small studio at home, to do specificaly 1940's Hurrell style glamour lighting portraits. I am at a loss as to what types of lights to buy, and I am on a very, very small budget at first. -Under $400. I can hang a black muslin background from the ceiling, so won't need background stands at first.
I know I'd like tungsten or incandescent lights with barndoors to replicate the look, but how many watts?, can I get by with 2 lights to start?, etc. It is hard to find any good practical info on this lighting style..... any help would be appreciated!
some photos from my recent Scotland project are at
to illustrate the environmental portraiture and landscapes I have done.
Thanks in Advance,
