Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating a low-cost constant lighting setup, part of The DIY Photographer.
- Welcome to the DIY Photographer.…I'm Joseph Linaschke, your host.…Photography is all about light.…Without light we don't have photography.…So, learning to control and manipulate your light…can really open up the world of photography for you.…Now, we all know that studio lighting…whether you're talking about little strobes…or big huge studio lights or constant lights…like expensive color temperature controlled LEDs…or even these slightly less expensive…but still pretty pricey constant lights…that are made for photography…can cost a lot of money.…
Now, if you want to get into lighting in photography,…just start playing with artificial lighting.…Those price tags can seem pretty daunting.…But I want to show you how for just a few dollars…you can start to play with artificial lighting on your own.…What we're gonna talk about today…are these things right here.…Simple little clamp lamps.…This is something that you can get…at your hardware store for next to nothing.…A clamp lamp can go just about anywhere…and it takes standard household bulbs.…
That's the idea behind The Do-It-Yourself Photographer. Photographer and educator Joseph Linaschke shows how you can fashion ordinary items—from plastic cups to clamps to parchment paper—into accessories that will improve lighting, stabilize your camera, and much more.
So roll up your sleeves and break out the gaffer's tape. Learn how to become a DIY photographer.
