  • First get rid of the "nightstands" and replace with light stands, they're way too low.  ;-) Second, stop down lens until the room goes black with just ambient.  That way, the only light in the ...
  • I was wrong on the plastic drain pipe size, it 4 inches, same as test plug. This afternoon, I straightened up my truck bed from a Sunday studio shoot and realized my error. BTW, my old backdrop is ...
