I want to open my own portrait studio and of course money is tight considering I still need to buy light equipment.
Now, I am trying to use what is available to me and I can't afford to rent a building, but I do have a 40ft fifth wheel RV. I am wanting to put a small studio enough to photograph 5-6 people if needed. The problems are low ceilings are about 7.5-almost 8ft tall. I will have up to like 20ft length wise and 8ft wide. I am not that familiar with lighting set up, but wanted to start with something basic stationary. When I worked at a small portrait studio they had a one light set up, very easy set up 1 mono-light maybe like the norman ml600 with a soft box.
Is this possible in my situation? If so what equipment do you recommend? I have searched till I can't search anymore and feel I am getting nowhere. I feel like it is impossible to make this work . If I were to put a soft box above me like size 26' it would be pretty close to my head. I hope you can help with any advice I could even send pics of area.
