Setting up the Studio, and some lessons
Me painting the luan bi-fold doors to use as cutters to block the light from hitting the subject from the side.
In the foyer I set up the lights on the stands before taking them to the garage. This took about an hour to open them up, set them on the stands, check the connections, yadda yadda yadda.
Here's the set up my Big camera is on the tripodbarely visible on the bottom right. The umbrella flash is set up for the subject. The flashes are behind the white doors painted earlier. The paper stand was a bit of a pain to set up. You can see the clamp on the paper to keep it from unrolling. Arias' tutorial covered a lot! Biggest issues are managing all the other crap in the garage, and watching all the plugs for the strobes.
