Photo Studio Make Over Part II

If you were following Part I then you know about my new project. I was stoked how much room I had now to move around in. unlike before were I was squeezing in between things and moving junk around. (black v flat on the floor that I was painting).

It was during this test shoot with Talea was when I knew I had more work to do. lifting lights stands and changing rolls of paper was a lot of work and I wanted a more simple way of doing things.

So I went on Amazon and invested in a Avenger A5029. Yup It’s light stand.. with WHEELS.

The next step was to get rid of that dirty green carpet and start getting these walls painted and the cracks filled with caulking.

Now that the walls were painted I installed Fotodiox’s Triple Roller Paper Drive Set from Amazon. *the hardware they give you for mounting was pretty wimpy so I recommend you go to the hardware store and get some real bolts so later on the whole thing does not come crashing down.
