I came across this article the other day about how to create a portrait studio setting outdoors on pretty much no budget. This sounds like my domain for sure.. especially since I’m pouring all of my excess money right now into savings for a new car. Finally, after 10 years.. I will have a heater and power windows! (This will benefit everyone.. especially those who have kindly given me rides on the coldest of winter days.. and the rest who have heard me endlessly bitch about driving anywhere in the winter.)
So the article basically describes making a “set” by draping a sheet over a wooden dowel hanging on two folding ladders. The rest is basically playing around with bouncing sunlight onto your subject. Sounds simple enough even for me! Not to mention, fun!
The results look pretty promising too! Kind of jealous that I will not have a rooster in my shots though..
Things are in the works to have my first shoot this weekend and hopefully a second shoot the weekend after. Very delighted to so far be having a great turnout of friends interested in helping out and getting their portraits taken! Such brave souls they are. ;)
