My Temporary Photo Studio.

It took me a while to set up a temporary studio in our recreation/TV room where almost all of my pottery pieces are. However, once it was set up and all the parameters tested and established it goes very quickly. The shutter speed, f stop and distance from lens to object do not change. Only adjustment I have to do because of light value of each individual piece is aperture compensation.
This is what my set up with light tent looks like.
I am using two goose neck desk lights fitted with 26W mini energy saving, cool, fluorescent light bulbs that are equivalent to 100W incandescent light. At the back I am using fluorescent tube work light. The tent is covered with white cotton/polyester blend tight weave fabric.
I was experimenting with bounce flash but it produced harsh highlights so I don’t use it any more.
