I’m thinking about opening an Etsy store, so I figured I should work on improving my photography.
We have a large unfinished basement, and an old dining room table, so I got busy on Amazon and bought a few things to allow me to set up a tabletop ‘studio’.
I bought an Apollo Studio PH-Studio-T1 Kit ($35.30) that includes
I added a third light (CowboyStudio 50 watt $12.42), and a boom (LimoStudio Photo Reflector Arm Stand $24.90) to suspend a light over the tent.
I already had a tripod, and picked up a Nikon Coolpix L830 for under $200. The camera can do both stills and full HD video, and will come in handy in the shop and for snapshots, etc., replacing my ten year old digital camera.
So, for under $300, I feel like I have really stepped up my game.
Anyone have any thoughts, suggestions, questions?
