Great work on your restoration, But I would exercise caution with a foot switch toggle on a lathe. Remember what a lathe will do to you if your in the wrong position and it turns on. Its a dangerous setup with a potential for injury. The probability of something happening is different from the fact that IT CAN HAPPEN. Maybe have a secondary safety switch somewhere else. Keep up the great work!
This is an updated video to my last "crappy to happy" lighting video. I tried to make this as easy to follow as possible and use gear that anyone could get their hands on. The purpose of this video is NOT to get caught up in the gear I use because its much more about the technique and light placement that really makes the shot look better. I use the gear I have which I do consider budget-friendly considering most YouTubers use a $700 120D light, but I guess its all relative. I hope you enjoy!
