HFP # 3: Studio Pojok Dhi


Yups, that’s my humble corner for photo experiments. It gets the most lights during daytime. What you see there, is a simple handmade studio from used cardboard box (it’s a really thick one, the kind of box you’ll get from the movers) 70 x 50 cm plus ‘some’ paper found coincidentally in the local market – I think they use this kind of paper to wrap bakeries & munchies – quite thin but make a great light diffuser.

Never thought of going serious with this photo taking, I used to take food shots on the bed with plain white/black sheet as the background relying on the winter sun the whole time. Closing in to mid summer, it’s almost impossible using natural light in photo shooting. So, here you are. Using a corner of our living room, right next to a large window.

I made a smaller box previously, but the little cat decided to destroy it. That little creature, so pointlessly destructive. He was just sniffing the box. Before I knew it, I caught a glimpse of him flying in mid-air attacking the box into pieces. Sh*t!  This mini-studio is the second attempt. Hope it last longer. Both cats now look interested to turn this into their new scratching post. Go awaaaayyyyy….!!!


Pic.1.  Setup by a large window. The back light needs to be supported by a box to get the height I want. Under the table, the apple-green container, is my prop collection storage. I also keep a wooden wine box and a toaster cardbox just in case.

Pic. 2. Setup upclose – I love the lighting to help night shots

Pic. 3. Whoops, I guess I got carried away. I painted the edges with yellow floral design.
