Bed Sheets + Camera + Cool People = My Ghetto Studio

Having borrowed some extra camera flashes and umbrellas, I decided it would be fun to get some cool looking “studio shots” during the New Year’s party I was at.  Of course first I would have to transform the upstairs bedroom into something that at least resembles a studio.  So we found some white bed sheets, pinned them to the ceiling and started shooting….well, I ended up shooting for over 3 hours that night; over 1000 images.  It was a lot of fun and I got some cool looking shots.  Below are just some of my favorites.  In the first picture you can totally see the bed sheets wrinkled up in the back; pretty funny.

    I’ve been looking into a a few simple strobe/flash + umbrella setups. How did you set your’s up and triggering method?

    There were to lights. One main light and one back light. The flash on the camera was the “master” that set the other ones off. Everything set to manual

    The simple lighting is very effective yet what (IMO) really stands out is 1. your timing (when you release the shutter) and 2. the participation of your friend/models (which sets an outstanding mood). Excellent shots.
