Prior to this Topic, Jon H. has given me some advise regarding Stock Photography and Portraits using a studio setup, and I wouldn't have been able to achieve without his help, the end results as follows;

Hi Jon
After some time to determine what I wanted to buy, based on what was available locally and the information you provided.

One issue, I didn't want to out lay money then find I needed to reinvest money in the correct equipment. Eg I couldn't buy Foam Core in full sheets, in the end I bought a Block Out Blind - White for $30. Lighting decision was a three softbox continuous light system as per photo for $279.

Jon H. thank you for your input.

Thank You

PS: Looking to buy white manequinn

VERY nicely done, Mark! Funny you mention knock out blind material. I was just at our local Jo-Ann Fabrics the other day looking at the same material given that it's more durable than paper. Great for single, maybe two people, and if you buy 5 or 6 yards, it would be long enough to use as a seamless sweep. Nice light setup too. I think you'll be much happier with that having the proper equipment (softboxes). Look forward to seeing more of your work from your new setup! Best, Jon
