So, I have got a product to shoot and I don't have that much time. I don't want to set up all this other stuff. It just seems so laborious. My gear, what's in here? You know, what I love about this solution is that, this becomes the photo tent itself. It's got a nice frosted side. In fact, I could set up in no time, I bet you I can set up in under maybe five minutes. On your mark, get set, go! (Music playing) Yeah, that's what I am talking about. I am telling you, this set up is great.
Having the container as the backdrop really adds to this, because I can quickly set up. Now what did I just set up? I have three light stands, three hoods. I've got a little bit of muslin that I can drape over the sides if my lights are little too hot. I keep a couple of backdrops and of course, some tape. This is your little rigging machine right here and pretty much you can get up and running. Well, if this doesn't look like much, don't let that worry, the shots speak for themselves.
