How to Make a Studio

Today is set aside for photographing products for the soon to be relaunched Freshly Found Website. This is how I do it.  
I only have natural light to work with, so have to diffuse it and spread it around as much as possible.  Out of sight are 3 make-up mirrors which I also use to add light to the dark side of the products.  I find climbing up and down the ladder and bending over the tripod back-breaking, so thought I'd take a break and show you what I am up to!

Great 'behind the scenes' post... and the Golden Hands books!! I took a whole set when I moved to France for 6 years and had to leave them behind. They're still in storage, but I think it may be time to get organised and organise a few boxes shipped back home... :)

Lovely to see how it all happens. Even in capturing your creativity you are creative. Love the polystyrene reflector boards.
