My mother in law is having a birthday afternoon tea next Saturday. I have offered to run a photo booth so we can get images of all the friends and family. Should be a lively and fun party. I haven’t done anything like this before. I have the equipment as I have slowly been building up my studio flash equipment and modifiers, but have yet to trying all out in anger. I think I will try out a paramount or clam shell setup.
I plan to use the following:
- Background stand with grey backdrop cloth
- Lastolite Lumen8 400 studio flash
- 140cm octagon softbox
- Stand with sandbags
- Silver / white reflector
- Wireless flash trigger
- Nikon D7200
- Nikon 50mm f1.8 D AF Lens
- Gaffer tape and clamps
- Extention lead
It will be good practice and experience for me, but I must admit I am somewhat nervous as I don’t want to make a hash of it. If all goes to plan I will post some of the results after the event.
I would be glad if any readers have experience of running this type of event have any advice.
