I’m experimenting and just getting my feet wet with studio photography. Raw MDF is my backdrop for the time being, the lights are second hand but even new they don’t cost very much. The camera is set on auto but I can see for this sort of thing I’m going to have to go manual.
The first set is at night with the umbrella lights and the shed lights. It’s a dramatic effect but the timber gets lost. Most of the other shots are with strong morning light and the umbrella lights.
Over a period of two days different parts of the guitar stand were tapered and finessed. The black stand is the prototype and is just nailed and screwed together.
I can’t decide if this guitar stand is a long lost Shaker design or if it would come from the Ikea custom shop. If such a place existed, the guitar stand might be called Yngwie
Any lighting and photography advise will be most welcome.
A guitar with stand is about the limit of backdrop cover with the 2.4m x 1.2m MDF standing on edge.
