PRESS RELEASE: Rocky Nook Publishes 'Low Budget Shooting: Do It Yourself Solutions to Professional Photo Gear'
SANTA BARBARA, Calf. -- Most photographers will agree that after buying cameras, lenses, computer gear, and software, the spending never seems to end. More gear is needed for studio, tabletop, and flash photography, and for accessories here and there. Often, the right accessories are not even available. That is where this book comes in.
Low Budget Shooting is the one-stop source where you will find instructions and a shopping list on how to build an array of useful and inexpensive photographic tools.
Filled with full-color images and easy-to-follow text, this book shows how to build essential lighting and studio equipment for use inside the studio as well as in the filed.
In this book you will learn:
• How to make the perfect light-table for shooting small objects
• How to build reflectors, soft-boxes, and light-tents that really work
• How to build equipment for use on the road
• Where to get some of the little helpers that make a photographer's life so much easier.
This clever little book is a creative and valuable resource for most any photographer.
