As part of our continual efforts to add amenities to our studios, Camera Ready Studios has now added a 6′ camera stand to our Studio 1. The stand is counter-balanced for smooth operation, has locking wheels, a nice Manfrotto ball head with Quick-Release plate, and a Bogen tray that is perfect for holding a laptop for tethered shooting.
“Whether you’re shooting model portfolios or a catalog, stable camera placement allows for consistency – which is what I love about a camera stand” says William Morton of Morton Visuals photography. “The ability to shoot tethered to a laptop ensures you get the shot you want at the time. It also eases the subject’s minds when they’re concerned about whether they look good or not. I shoot tethered at every possible opportunity,” Morton added.
The camera stand is now an integral part of Studio 1 and is free to use for all renters. Feel free to come check it out!
Camera Ready Studios has added a new small studio for quick and easy headshots! Although we are going to be refining it and making it prettier, the new studio is functional and ready for use.
Equipped with Westcott continuous lighting, the studio is designed to allow photographers to be able to walk in with just a camera, turn on any combination of the three lights and position them as desired with the rail system, and create easy headshots using their camera’s TTL metering. No more need for a light meter to try to adjust lighting down to your desired aperture – you can shoot at any shutter speed, even at f/1.8 or f/2.8! The hair light can be rotated to light the background (great for a bright white background) or used as a hairlight, and 5 power switches allow you to easily adjust the lighting intensity. The continuous lighting also allows you to record video for your own YouTube clips if desired.
Assorted seamless is available for backgrounds – clean white, neutral gray, light blue, chromakey green, and others from time to time. Of course you can bring in your own seamless or twist-flex backdrop too.
The studio may be booked online for $50/hr (or $25/hr for our members), making it an easy option for your realtor or other clients who just need a quick headshot for their social media. Come check it out!
