    Lighting Grid Question

    Hey there you all. I have a question for you. We are trying to make a grid for one of the clients i am working for. We are needing to photo rugs that are laying on the floor. I am going to have walls around the walls, so that we can take 3 pics at one time. anyway, i need some advice on hanging lights. Specifically what would you hang for straight down lighting?

    After doing a bit more research i am guessing i will need something like this. Someone want to tell me how to make them for cheaper then 1500 each? i need 8 and my budget for the room/cameras/ and lights is less then this would cost me

    Hmm... most photographers hang rugs for photography, as it is easier and you don't need a rig for the cameras and lights, but anyway, seems like a new challenge in this case!

    Instead of a light grid, I guess you need at least 4 lights (continuous or strobes), same bulbs. No mixed lighting is useful so keep it to an enclosed area (no sunlight, no ambient light, just the continuous/strobes). Set the lights (2 at 1/3 the height of the rug shooting across at 45 degrees, 2 at 2/3 the height of the rug shooting across at 45 degrees), and if you need them more evenly lit, use a shoot through umbrella.

    Renting these strobes should cost you less?
