Two things drive this project.
1. I don’t like buying things I can make.
2. I can’t afford fancy factory made studio equipment.
So, because I’m re-igniting my old profession, photography, and want to do perosnal portraiiture, I will be building most everything but the camera.
This is the first thing, a free standing main light. It’s all oak except for the hardware.
The second photo shows the diffuser half withdrawn. the other photos show that there are four CFLs in the lamp, and they’re individually switched show I can select different light intensities.
