As you may know from some of my previous blogs posts about my mini studio setups, I have been using the kitchen in an ad hoc manner to take a lot of my macro shots. This is all very well, but it can be a pain if I want to leave the rig up (for water droplets, for instance) and still have room to make some dinner!
So I’ve been thinking about alternatives for some time. I’ve finally evicted all the rubbish from the spare bedroom and given my old sofa bed to a charity. With the addition of three folding camping tables and a couple of plastic tidy drawers on castors, I’ve transformed the room into a little studio where I can play with various shots and leave things up until I need them again, and store all my photographic stuff in a neat and tidy fashion, rather than it being scattered around the house. I’m pretty pleased with the space. Have a look for yourself:
Now it is set up, I’m looking forward to using the studio more over the coming months.
