On this short video photographer Tony Roslund gives 4 simple yet very useful tips based on his own experience for better organization of some of the gear in his studio.
Roslund is a food photographer and he spends a great deal of his time in his studio and has lots of studio equipment – large and small. Organizing it in a way that will be practical, will not take too much space and will be logical and easy to use (and put back in the same order) can be tricky. This video brings a number of tips about how a pro photographer does it.
Here are the 4 tips mentioned on this video:
- Use a pegboard to organize all your grip equipment.
- Use an accordion folder to organize your different gels.
- Use rolling carts for your tethered workstation and other handy items you need to move around the studio a lot. Use a UPS for your computer if you have a large studio and don’t want very long power cables running around to power your computer while moving to the next AC wall socket.
- Create a DIY seamless paper storage system (check it out here).
Photographer Rob Grimm, who is actually mentioned in this video recently made an interview with Roslund talking with him about his work and it is a worthwhile watch. You can also check some other videos Roslund himself did with some good tips – here on LensVid.
