Do you have to pay studio rates or can you create a lighting setup at home? Do you need a ton of expensive equipment or just a handful of key tools?
Do you want to know how you can get images that are indistinguishable from the ones produced in the leading photography studios? Nick Francher has come to your aid. In his book Studio Anywhere he shows you how you can set up a simple but effective lighting and backdrops in the smallest of spaces, whether that be a garage, a cluttered bedroom, or even outside.
Over the years, I’ve slowly discovered that a traditional photo studio isn’t necessary to get studio-like results. If you are shooting a portrait of someone, for example, you need only a few feet of blank wall. My perspective has always been one of using what you have. If you are just starting out, you have nothing or next to it. I don’t have a ton of gear, but I have all the tools that I need to get the job done.
Studio Anywhere aims to show you how to achieve the shot of your dreams while working in some of the most problematic scenarios imaginable.
Nick has a “deconstruct the photo” thread running throughout the book (one for each studio section), which will help you to better read photos (how many lights were used?, what kind of modifier was used?, where was the light placed?) in order to “reverse engineer” them, so that they can recreate similar lighting scenarios themselves. After reading Studio Anywhere, you will be inspired to get out and shoot in more “unconventional” locations, and will be equipped with the knowledge and know-how to do so.
