Studio lighting #135

I've bought some studio lighting mainly for these yearbooks that I keep harping on about. It's an entire mini studio where you get two soft lights and a stand with three backdrops. Normally I photograph the mugshots of the kids outside in the natural light but due to the bad weather that we've been having I can't risk having to do it indoors with a flash. The studio kit arrived last Thursday and I've only just now got round to taking them out and trying them. However (darn it) one of the bulbs is rattling and doesn't work – hence the reason why one side of my sons face is slightly in shadow. Levi didn't really want to pose for me so I said that he could use the iphone to occupy his time! Look at the concentration on his face. I hope I can get a replacement bulb sent to me in time for next week. Yikes
great shot - love his concentration! nice light too - sounds like you'll have a great set up!

@aleksandra I got then from eBay. I was going to buy the lights only from amazon for £120 but eBay had the lights, the stand and three backdrops for £160. Something like this. http://item.mobileweb.ebay.co.uk/viewitem?itemId=320773078738&index=17&nav=SEARCH&nid=55327506195. Time will tell if it's any good though.
