I might be buying a new house this year, finally making space for a little studio/play room. I need good ideas.
Thinking good to have on cold, dark winter days/ nights.

It's the modifiers you use that make the biggest impact on the image. Today I got something I have been looking for for a long time - way better than those stupid pop-up light tents.

What I had in mind will be more of a permanently available space- a corner of a room. Now everything has to be packed away everytime I do anything else. Both because of a general lack of space, and because the kids do not respect an items holyness to me- they will have to be locked out. Unless they are the model, of course...

Hope you don't mind if I take a guess of what you've done.
Looks like you've got two diffused light sources (eg: through a shoot through umbrella or softbox), one on each side of the lens and possibly a snooted/restricted third light from the front aimed at/around the Nikkor 50mm badge.
Just a guess anyway. Feel free to tell me I'm wrong

This is how I do small product shots now. Previously I used the same space, but would bounce the top light off the ceiling with a +1.7 compensation and I had only a second light bounced onto the front of the item with a large silver umbrella. That setup worked, but it was a pain in the arse to rig. I would have to have the door moved away from the shooting table and then had to deal with two light stands, one with the boom arm and another with a big umbrella in a confined space. This way produces much better results and the speedlights get a breather from heavy duty recycling.

However, enough IS enough.
Thanks for the insight, Alf
