The Most Useful Inexpensive Accessories

If you don’t have a roll of gaffer’s tape in your studio, put down this book, go online, and order a few rolls right now. Not duct tape. Not electrical tape. Gaffer’s tape! It’s one of those things that once you have it, you’ll wonder how you got through a shoot without it (ask any studio photographer). You’ll use it for everything from holding grid spots in place, to fixing a gap in a softbox, to keeping things together when doing product shots, to...I could go on and on. The other thing you need about six, or so, of are A-clamps. They’re another one of those things that should be in every studio, and you’ll use them for everything from hanging things from a boom stand, to pinning back clothing on your subject to get rid of wrinkles (which is why you need small ones and large ones). You’ll find these at your local hardware store (or go online) and you’ll find a hundred uses for them. Keep these two inexpensive accessories around, and you’ll keep from pulling your hair out—and it’ll keep the shoot moving ahead (instead of coming to a halt while you run to the store).
