One of my Dreams came True Two Weeks Ago
I have my home studio!!! Real home studio!!! Yes, I have made my own studio with cloth background and gadgets I place together from Home improvement shops (I am a really handy chick. I build my own stuff many days. I learned well from my mom 🙂 ) I used my off camera flashes because that was all that I had and it did well. Now I have all the gears I dreamed. My husband had gave me an amount for our 10 years anniversary and even surprised me and higher the amount by telling me stop being so cheap get all that I need and buy good quality gears that will last long, don’t look so much at the price….but remember Christmas is around the corner and we are building a house. That made me think smarter or I would really get “all” that I wanted, LOL.
Where I live at the moment is a nice size flat but not big as what I am use to in the State. We need one more level for that. It is big as one level in the State but two would be nicer for all the crap I have.
Even the basement is full that I am literally afraid to go down there to grab anything out and waiting for something to fall ontop of me. Yeah that full. Therefore, I had to choose the room wisely and move all my stuff if not pack them on top of each other to make space. It took a week to do that as I was fighting in my head of not wanted to move anything but knew it needed to be move or that it will magical moved it self as I sat there staring at it. Nope it did not budge, LOL. I had an appointment for my first shoot two weeks ago and time was getting close. I made up my mind to move my butt into gear and move things around for everything to fit well with out feeling cramp. I was totally happy to see the result and proud of myself. The first shoot was a success! The model could move easily, more things such as props could be added into the room and it fit 4 people comfortable as we were shooting. Since my home studio I had two models with different themes and one coming tomorrow for her shoot making three so far in a short time. The weather is beautiful outside; a bit chilly but that is not the reason I am shooting at home when I can shoot outside in which I actually do both. Certain themes need certain situation, lighting, and etc. I love outdoor shooting because of nature and many possibilities of backgrounds. But I love indoor shooting as well because I love using lights/controlling the sun and adding drama to my photos. Once I have edit all the three studio shoots I will share one of each. I have actually three photos on my photo page Lora Victoria Fotografie on Facebook of the photos I have taking in my home studio so far. She was my first model to work with me in my professional home studio and all of us love the result. No more renting studio for me unless the client/model need to have something I don’t have at home.
I must get off the internet. Tomorrow shoot will have four themes and I need to see if I have everything and organize the set up. Wishing you all a beautiful week!
