hugeinjapan replied to your photoset: Kel bought a lighting kit today for portraiture…

I got one of the tungsten work lamps from Lowe’s for like $10. You’ve got to tweak your white balance, but it’s nice and easy. I also bought a sheet of white and black foamboard that I can use to contrast whatever plates I’m using.

Yeah, Kel hipped me to the white balance thing, which I didn’t really know anything about.  I’m kind of an idiot when it comes to photography (also, I’m colorblind, so that’s not helping much either).  I definitely need a stronger light, but I like the CFL from the “doesn’t get really hot and burn my house to the ground” angle.  I need to find a 100 or 110 watt equivalent, I think.
