  1. 1. STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY THINGS ONE MUST KNOWClicking photographs in the studio especially while clicking for Stock Photos requires alot of creativity. Without creativity a photographer will get dull and boring images ofthe subject. Lighting and other studio equipment has to be used in the optimum wayto make the images look lively and colorful those have the ability to attract theattention of the beholder. If one has a big budget then renting a big studio can be agood option where one will find all the lighting and background needed to create allthe effects. Having a studio at home will also be a good option as you can shootspontaneously as and when required.Take care while renting a studio check if the studio is floor based or ceiling based.
