I made my first studio in garage. I was freshman in collage (2011), I didn’t have a driving licence so if I wanted to shoot, someone had to take the car out of the garage. I had some long sticks on which I put my fabric or paper background and took photos.
I used construction halogen lights. At the beginning I had two of those, one was stronger. I used white photographic umbrellas to defuse the light.
Shooting in living room
In garage there was cold so If it was possible, I shoot in our living room – in my parents living room. Backdrop was taped on bookcase and I combined natural light with halogens.
These nudes were made there:
Studio in my living room
I moved to separate flat in my parents house in autumn 2013. So my studio was there instead of the living room. Another year I shoot with my halogens. But then I bought my first external flash and in January 2014 I become a freelancer. I didn’t shoot portrait back then (to make money).
In December 2014 I bought a studio flash and softboxes. So my studio finaly started looking like one.
I bought my studio gear at Photools.cz so I used theirs photos.
