I was recently asked to do a photo shoot for a couple of friends. They have never had formal photos done as a couple. This was a great opportunity for me as well as them. I don’t currently have a lot of fancy gear as far as lighting and back drops etc… so I had to be resourceful. I used a halogen work light I bought at the local hardware store for around $60.00CAN it has 2 500 watt lights on a T bar about 2 feet long, a reflector made from one of those silver reflectors you put on the dash of your car to keep the heat out in the Summer. I hung that on a microphone stand that has a boom. The back drop is the fireplace in our living room which is decorated for Christmas.
