I have a small, small studio (you will be surprised how small). And this recorded session will show you how I use it.

Categories: ,

Less is always more. My studio set up is as simple as they get. One light. One soft box and one 53 inch roll of paper. Then, all you need is this simple comprehensive workshop to understand how my preferred lighting is set up. I will walk you through a standard head shot session of mine from set up to final edit in this new recorded workshop.

    This course changed my life. It had a WEALTH of knowledge inside. If you are a beginner, or even if you have experience with a studio, this is course is a must have. From posting, to lighting, to back drops…everything you need to take the “next step” in your journey is here.

    I think what I like most about this workshop is Meg did not forget where she came from. When she told us how she was able to accomplish the wind blow, pre-assistant, that part kind of blew me back for a second. It reminded me that Meg was once where most of us are. Very relatable. The little tips here and there on how to accomplish simple things like that throughout the workshop feels very encouraging to know it is achievable without the high end status.

    That was SO much fun!! Being able to see the young models, the beautiful clothes and then the plain tank top, the scarf was very cool and the editing was helpful to see Meg’s vision!!!!!! I need to get a soft box and get set up! Thank you Meg!!!!!!!

    Following the advice in this workshop has really transformed how I think about studio lighting and children’s photography. I see now that I can offer something more meaningful and treasured than your typical kids portrait at the mall.

    Game changer!! I had the equipment, just never thought I had the space. But with no excuses and a little bit of muscle to move furniture around, I have made my home a studio and it’s just that simple. Meg really goes in depth with posing, she has a great sense of direction and way with her words. Just repeat after Meg and you got this!!

    Great, must-have investment. To Meg’s point, photography is all about light, so understanding all kinds of light – both natural (simple studio natural) and source (simple studio one light) are must-haves!

    You should buy this when you are first starting out with studio lighting as it will show you what you are trying to achieve. The posing tips in this workshop are great as well. Even if you work with a speedlight you can still adapt this to your set up.

    To be honest, this video is for people who have not worked with a softbox in a studio before. I was hoping to learn about how to choose your settings on your strobe. And how to do a white balance. And maybe some different lighting effects. But the description says its Megs Studio set up. And different studios do things different ways. I purchased this knowing it was Meg’s way. So if you are wanting to go the technical route this may not be for you. But if you are wanting to go the shoot and see what happens, then make some adjustment route this is good. There is a lot of things to learn in this video if you do not already know how to photograph with softboxes. It will give you the confidence to stop wishing you could be a studio photographer and actually take action to try it out.

    First of all I feel incredibly inspired after watching several of her videos. This one had me reaching for my 70″ softbox though and attempting a shot. First off I learned quite a bit about posing and lighting which was so useful. I managed one shot with my daughter and edited initially to how I thought looked great and my process before. I then followed step-by-step via Meg’s video and couldn’t believe the difference! I thought my edit was great initially but beside an edit using Meg’s video it looks dreadful. I keep staring at it in disbelief. SO much learned, I can’t wait to utilize all the skills learned for further shoots. This may just be the confidence booster I’ve been needing to jump into this professionally. I felt like I’ve been searching for that missing piece and this could very well have been it!

    This was amazing and I highly recommend it. About 2 hours of footage, including edits, and it has helped so much. I’ve always been hesitant to do studio shooting because I didn’t know how to pose, how to set up, and best ways to edit. Now I am informed but most importantly, INSPIRED, to do studio set ups. The equipment Meg uses is AFFORDABLE and EASY to learn. Just takes practice! Thanks, Meg!!

    To be honest, I am surprised at how much I took away from this course. Going into it I thought I would prove myself right, that my small space was my limiting factor. Wrong! This is a perfect, one light setup which is now my goal for 2018. Once again, Meg delivers and helps provide guidance in an area someone is looking to improve in.

    Me: Whhhhhhhhine… My spare room isn’t big enough for a studio! Me, after watching this work shop: Shut up Tina, you have plenty of room, and your tiny backdrop… it’s bigger than Meg’s. Stop with your excuses! Thank you Meg Bitton!

    Definitely worth it! I learned so much about posing, frames, time limit, camera gear and lenses. So far this has been my favorite video to watch. I love watching how Meg shows you how she does it….then takes each person and shows them how to improve. The post processing is great as well. I never knew how to make my black background…black without banding. Excellent!

    Amazing! Simply amazing! I can’t wait for tomorrow to practice! I could watch this one workshop 100 times and still learn something new each and every time. Meg answered so many of my questions and teaches it in a way that is easy for me to can learn. If you have lights, no question, you need this workshop.

    Meg walks through her lesson, her point of view and shows us how to shoot with one light. Since it’s a class setting in the videos, there are other point of views, the students, and examples of how they shoot – as they learn. I found this very inspirational and learned a lot about how to pose and position models with a one-light set-up. Thank you, Meg!

    I enjoyed learning the ways in which Meg likes to edit a plain looking studio shot to have light and interest. In the past some of my images on a black background have looked boring but I now hope I can make them pop a little more. I also liked seeing real people learn the technique and shoot the young ladies as it can be much harder than it looks – great effort on behalf of the whole team. The little models are delightful girls.

    This has forever changed the way I set up my studio for a shoot. From start to finish, this online workshop was a game changer for me. I’ve always loved shooting outdoors, but this gave me a new appreciation (and LOVE) for shooting inside a simple studio!

    An amazing tutorial teaching everything from lighting, equipment, posing, style, keeping the child focused, seeing the live view of the captured images and editing the images from start to finish. Perfection! I had never attempted a studio image until after watching this tutorial.. Thanks to simple studio I was able to practice this same technique using window lighting with success.. then moved on to “cheap” lighting and had great success.. I loved the results I was getting so much I eventually purchased the recommended equipment to expand and continue practicing.
    Thank you so much Meg!!
