    What Studio Floor?

    Im setting up a small studio, im going to use paper BG and possibly a Multi panel floor tile, but the studio floor is 8" tiles, and not very level! so what would be the best thing to lay down so my paper is as flat as pos? i was going to use a few pallets, or some 1" ply... something like that...

    PIXAPRO Softboxs..

    Sounds good! iv gone for the Lencarta in the end, but its interesting what you say about Westcott! iv had two double fold brollies for about 5 years now and they are still in great shape.. the only thing is the screw for the tip is a little wonky! but other than that..

    CC please on how to improve my lighting..

    I think you'll see a fairly big difference if you were to up the exposure by about 1/3 of a stop!.. (just on the dog of course)
