Decision was taken and it was time to start but how? Right after investing in a camera equipment, I installed myself in the guess bedroom-after 10 years living abroad, guests are not eager to come that often, they are used to the fact that you are gone, that you are not in their lives.
So getting straight to the point, I was so excited and felt lucky to have a photography studio near to Amsterdam-the city of the design and creativity, without ruining myself paying a ridiculous monthly fee.
I kept a couch-bed in which papers, props , and all kind of stuff is lying on it. I kept a cabinet where I can use in the top to place more props and important items for the shooting: fishing line, flexible arms, blu tack, tape, scissors...
I also kept a couple of ikea tables and particle boards for creating the set and the background for the shooting and that was all- everything was ready to get it started. So no more excuses to yourself, you don't need a big budget to become a product photography. In another post, I will write and share some calculations of my initial investment in this business of product photography.
