Nex 5n for studio photography
May 11, 2012

Hello guys,

I am going to shoot photos of furniture for a family business. The photos will be used for print and the web. At first I planned to settle with either low budget lighting or try to make some DIY lights. However I lucked out and managed to borrow a pair of Elinchrom 500 BXRI strobes.

http://elinchrom.com/product/BXRi-500.html

So far I've managed to trigger the strobes using the on camera HVLF20S flash. Over the next week or so I will be making some space in the office to set up the paper backdrop. And will post some photos here.

Has anyone tried such a setup before? So far it seems things are going to work out. However, I have zero experience with studio shooting so any comments or tips would be appreciated!
