Hey guys. I come here first when I'm stumped because I can always depend on you guys.
I want to get more sophisticated with my ref for paintings. I want to own my own fancy lamp. I want one which will reach up high pointing down , and also go down very low pointing up. I also hope to find one which comes attached with a light-focusing ummm...aperture. So I can make it a broad light, or a spot light. I can't find anything with all of these traits online. Can anyone help me out??
I also found a site called modelmayhem.com which I plan to use to hire a model if I ever have any money. If anyone can make recommendations for finding models, please do.
And finally, costume. Does anyone have any advice on renting costume? I've been to plenty of thrift stores and halloween stores. Its just not working anymore. I want authentic costume. I could never afford to buy anything unless its something I use constantly like maybe a wizard's robe or chainmail. Everything else I would need to rent. Any ideas?
Thanks so much!
