When it comes to high-quality studio lighting, one name usually pops to the top of the list on a regular basis. Profoto has been producing pro-level studio lights for some time, with the Profoto B10 aimed at those who want a more portable solution, while still providing all the functionality needed for every shooting scenario.
Anyone venturing into studio lighting or cost-effective light modifiers for the first time can be easily bowled over with all the options available (and the cost). Once you start pricing up a decent set of strobes or Speedlites and softboxes, you can be easily put off, justifying why natural light is the only way to
If you’re in the position of needing more light output than what the average Speedlite can provide but want the same compact dimensions, the Flashpoint eVOLV 200 Pro is a likely option. This version is an upgrade to the original, with the same levels of output and improvements being focused on the build quality and
Let’s dive in before I come up with some groan-worthy pun about the Elinchrom D-Lite RX 4/4 being a signature model for the early 90s dance group ‘Deee-Lite.’ The RX 4/4 is a self-contained lighting rig with two studio strobes, stands, softboxes, and a transmitter, which truly proves groove is in the heart.

Octo lights, or octagonal softboxes, are a type of light diffuser commonly used in studio photography, or wherever the quality of light needs to be controlled.

There comes a time in every photographer’s lighting journey when they need to progress from regular flashguns/Speedlights to a monolight. The issues with a flashgun may be about needing more light output or features, which a monolight can provide in droves. Monolights can then be used both in the studio and on-location work, fulfilling all
Every good photographer knows that light is the most important element of photography. Learning how to use light – to direct and control it – is key to getting incredible, impactful shots. There are different ways in which lighting can be adjusted using light modifiers to produce better photos. While the lights themselves play a
If you have been using speedlites in your camera lighting setup for some time, there will come a point where you utter the Captain Kirk-like statement, ‘we need more power!’ Speedlites, or flashguns, are a great solution for most shooting scenarios, but they only have a relatively limited amount of wattage compared to studio lighting.
Lighting for photography is crucial for taking high-quality photos. Proper lighting can help accentuate the subject of the image with clarity and sharpness. Good lighting for photography lets you bring your creativity to the forefront and create whatever photographic mood your heart desires. There are many photographers’ lighting options available, whether in the studio or
While indoor photography comes with the advantage of giving you the ability to control lighting in your photos. Softbox lights make your indoor photography turns out even better. Softbox lighting kits soften the light from camera photography to reduce shadow, spread light in a shoot evenly, and minimize the exposure of glare. Even though softbox
