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
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.
It'll normally take place in Lyndhurst.
