Not the best photo studio bundle
on June 23, 2010
I am planning on slowly starting a small photography business and thought this cheap set would be great to get me started. Well....I had a few surprises!
Delivery seemed to take forever. It arrived "in time" - the last day allowed, but I guess I'm spoiled with Amazon's fast service. The lights are great - simple, great height. Comes with bulbs and white umbrellas. The stand is okay - little flimsy. My biggest complaint are the backgrounds. The description said they were 6 by 9 feet long. These backgrounds were NOT....more like 4 foot wide and 7 foot long....if that! They are also very see through. Poor quality on those! Also, the "green" background is not the same color as a green screen one - it is a dark green - like forest green!
I would only recommend this buy to someone who is planning on replacing the backgrounds. I went to the local fabric shop and got fabric cut out for me and made my own....possibilities are endless there! I guess I had my hopes up for this bundle, but I guess you get what you pay for. I would have rather paid more on a stand and purchased backgrounds later!
