Have you ever dreamt about setting up your own photographic home studio?

I remember when I convinced my wife to let me set up one in my home some years ago. I had dreams of setting up the spare room for taking great portraits of family and friends…. but then I went shopping and had my dreams dashed as I saw the price of the gear I would need.

My dream ended that day.

I wish I’d had this brand new downloadable PDF ebook from DIY photography – Home Studio Photography – it would have shown me how to get my home studio without breaking the bank (and giving me some great DIY projects to do.

Author Udi Tirosh describes its purpose:

This book takes the most important gear in the studio and demonstrates how you can build cheaper, yet fully functional versions.

All up there are 23 projects covered in this great ebook including:

  • The Easiest Softbox In The World
  • DIY Strip Light
  • The Best Softbox Ever
  • Continuous Light Softbox
  • Turkey Pan Beauty Dish
  • Foamboard Reflector
  • V Cards
  • PVC Diffusion Screen
  • The ‘Oh So Famous’ Cereal Snoot
  • Coroplast Gridspot
  • Black Straws Grid
  • PVC Light Stand
  • Pony Clamp Stand
  • Stick In A Can
  • Light Tent
  • Underlight With A Cardboard Box

There are also some useful Appendixes with a Cheat Sheet, some commonly used materials and suggested further reading.

All in all it’s 115 pages of really useful information for anyone wanting to have a go at building their own studio with some ideal projects to tackle over the Holidays and into the New Year.

Normally $19.85 USD – this week it’s being launched at $14.95 USD. You can pick it up here.

PS: There’s a 30 day guarantee – so if it’s not quite right for you you’re able to get your money back.

    I thought this was actually going to be an article for setting up a studio not a book plug, sad.

  • Love to try this and see the results.

  • Greg

    This is supposed to be an article, not an advertisement. This was my very first visit to this site, and this will be my last.

  • Nice ad.

  • I remember we started off with some cheap alternatives. My favorite was the reflective windshield protector as a reflector.

  • Ken

    It is pretty obvious it was a book plug. It’s Darren’s site, he can plug what he wants.

  • Ben

    ken 100% not obvious from the title, it shouls say book review or something in the title.

  • BarleyWheets

    This is NOT an article its an advertisement !! Wrong location for an AD!

  • Then don’t buy the book! Don’t complain because you can’t learn everything “for free”!

  • Jason

    I agree with Lonnie and Ken. This money is nothing for a well illustrated collection of good tips
