Helping a friend who is a makup artist take a few pictures for a little portfolio. Nothing special and on a 0$ budget. (with the exception of my Fiance, D300, tripod)
here are some pictures I took last night.
I know NOTHING about lighting other than a few tips I've read on the web regarding lighting positions, 3 point lighting for portrait photography, etc. Unfortunately, my budget is about 0$ maybe less.
say, if all I had at my disposal was home depot, and the lightbulb/lighting department...what can I rig up that will work ok. I'm not looking for super professional results, and don't expect them, just curious on if there is anything I can rig up to get some better results.
I'm happy with the above shots for the most part, only getting into photography in July, and still learning photoshop, however it did take a good 400 shots to get about 20 "decent" ones...
my friend was blown away by the pictures, and were better than ones he had paid for, he is having a few people come over next week for me to take more pictures and i wanted to have a few backdrops and some better lighting....any tips? Don't mind spending a few bucks at the hardware store for some bulbs and such to make do. the lighting in the above pictures was one of these jobbers with im not even sure what kind of bulb, incandescent, not sure on wattage, white though. and another standing house lamp with a florescent bulb.
