Garage Studio

I have recently been using the garage as a studio for some of my projects. This is mainly because my new Nikkor 70-200mm f/2.8VR lens has a minimum focus distance of 1.5m (5ft.), and I need the extra space. It's nice to have a bit of room to move about without having to climb over stuff.

This is the setup I used for the latest series of scarf shots I took for Maggie's Etsy store:

And this is the setup for my "portrait" of one of Maggie's spinning wheels:

Both of these (and lots of other setup shots) are on my Flickr page, with detailed descriptions and technical notes. I'm always surprised by the number of views these setup shots get, usually more than the "final result" photos.
