8 TIPS FOR CREATING A PORTABLE PHOTO STUDIO

If you do not have your own home photo studio yet, or you need to have a mobile to get studio-quality photos, read the advice of Mexico’s portrait photographer Jackie Lamas, who teaches you how to equip a photo studio that meets all the needs of a photographer.

It is also necessary to determine whether shooting will take place under natural light or use light outside the camera (or, perhaps, both). It depends on what basic equipment you need for photo shoots.

All this should be considered when you create a kit for a portable photo studio. This allows you to maintain high quality images from a technical point of view, even if you do not have a separate specially prepared studio space.

Basic equipment

Different types of photography will require different equipment. Most portable installations will include the following:

photophone, installation system for it and clips to fix the background;
light sources (either constant or pulsed, possibly remote camera flashes) and studio stands for them;
synchronizers and remote controls;
battery for studio lighting;
reflectors;
props for posing when shooting portraits.

Foldable studio background – great savings in space and maximum ease of operation. It is easily transported. It can be used inside or outside the room.

Additional equipment depends on the type of photograph. For example, for shooting newborns you will need a heated floor and a pillow for laying down a small model for a photo shoot.
For a desktop photo, you will need a lightbox or a table for subject shooting, various products for styling images to achieve the desired image.

Connect to devices

When you are taking pictures at a location using a portable photo studio, it is useful to connect the camera to the device. Whether it is a tablet or a laptop, in any case it will allow you to see the photo on the big screen, which facilitates the process of achieving the goal. You can sync your computer via WiFi or Bluetooth so that the connection is wireless. Pay special attention that the battery life of the camera will be less than usual. In this case, you may have to change the battery more often.

Connecting to a device can help you see the image on the big screen.

Another way to connect is to connect the camera via cable. This limits the mobility of both the device and the camera, although it is not a problem if you do not move a lot in the process of shooting. But you can use a longer cable to be able to move around without problems.

Portable tent

Sometimes using a portable photo studio can be quite difficult to find a place with an accessible dressing room for customers. There is a way – make a portable tent part of your set.

This is a folding tent that can be expanded to give customers space and privacy. They will not need to look for some snaps or change clothes in a cramped car.

The most convenient thing in a tent is that it can be folded, which means that there will be no difficulties with transportation. The tent will be needed for shooting portraits, photo shoots of models, love stories, etc.

Allow customer to add props

Having a portable studio means that you are limited by the size of your car. This means that you also have to limit the type of props you can buy, hold and store until you use it.

Ask your customers to bring their props to the shoot. This may work to your advantage, as each photo session will always be different from the previous one.
