- Edit My Images
I am planning on starting to offer a service where I go to events with a pop up studio and take group photos that I will sell on to guests. My idea is this: A white cloth backdrop from Amazon with stands holding it up, a tripod set up in the middle with my camera on it, two light stands on either side of the tripod with a flashgun and a wireless trigger mounted on each with a 84cm white shoot through umbrella on each light stand. I am planning on buying some props related to the events I'll be shooting and will take group shots with friends with a fun theme in the hope of selling quite a few images. Will this setup suffice for some good quality, well lit images? Or will I need a more advanced set up - like a light behind the people to blow out the backdrop and make it pure white? I am only 15 so I am on a relatively small budget of about £200-£250, just for the flash kit. Please could you guys suggest whether this setup will do, and if not, what I could do to improve it and the resulting images for not alot of money.
