This project, among other things, was inspired by Randofo.
Step 1: Tools and materials
- 60" length of 1/2" iron pipe with threaded ends
- 1/2" flange fittings
- 90 degree 1/2" elbow
- 6" length of 1/2" pipe nipple
- 2 spring clamps
- Savage Seamless Bright White Photo Backdrop
The lights are technically not part of the backdrop, but they are just simple 4' x 2 bulb fluorescent fixtures. The bulbs are 32 Watt Cool White (4100K) tubes. I prefer the 4100k to the 5000k color temperature. For some reason the 5000k light is very very sterile and bright white. A little yellow actually softens things just a bit.
