how do you light your set-ups?
Hey hey hooray! You're back in business. Thank goodness. Hope you're warm enough at home now! I'm sure the Website is saying "welcome back, Julian and Ruth"!!!
As the saying goes, two heads are better than one!
hi John, I use natural light, I have a set of shelves by a window and I use bits of draped material to create shadows (like a little stage) if necessary. If it's very dark, which it is on some of these winter afternoons, I use a 5500K digital photography lamp to supplement the daylight.
Thanks Joyce glad to be back, I have been without internet or telephone now for ten days.
