At The Photography Show: Spring Shoots, professional product photographer Barry Mountford demonstrated some simple yet effective lighting setups at home, in real-time, featuring snoots, scrims and other studio-style secrets.

His shooting area is just 7 x 7 feet, so you don't need much space to replicate these results – which are ideal for trying at home. For lights Barry is using Pixapro CITI600 and CITI300 flash heads, with a variety of modifiers including a snoot and softbox for varying results.
