Miniature Studio PED
Not owning my own studio, running a regular studio event is tricky...   You need to hire the space, find a willing model or two, which of course is possible, but can sometimes be a challenge.   It got me thinking as to how I could try and recreate a studio on a smaller scale, hence the  Miniature Studio PED concept was created.

My idea was to create something where the basic principals / techniques of lighting can be scaled up so as to be similar for a full size studio setup, which meant having a table top studio with smaller lights that could be moved around easily as required.  Just to make my challenge a bit more tricky, the whole thing had to pack down into an oversized aluminium briefcase.

With a bit of cunning DIY, some cheap LED lights from Amazon, a few bits and bobs from the pound shop, and delving into my far too numerous collection of action figures for models, and suddenly an event was ready!

A regular 18-55 "kit lens" will be perfect for this event, and if you have your own tripod bring it along (I have one you can borrow otherwise).

Events will be around 2/3 hours in duration.

Event Location: 
It'll normally take place in Lyndhurst.

Recommended equipment

  • A macro lens (or extension tubes if you want to get closer to your subject)
  • Extra camera batteries
  • A monopod will make things easier, but isn't essential
Photo Experience Day Review
“From a beginner I have now attended a couple of experience days and social evenings...  All have been fun as well as educational. The social days are a great way to meet like minded people, share experiences while getting more practice with the camera and I hope to do more soon.”
