Balancing Sunlight NaturallyFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday June 27, 2013 Making The Lit Look Unlit Photographers just starting out with lighting equipment can make the mistake of showing too much in their work: it's generally easy to spot when supplemental lighting gets used.

For "rain", we went with our tried-and-true fan nozzles. You can see all about making…

Photoflex was my first choice for light modifiers when I started building my own studio arsenal almost twenty years ago. I still have that first Medium Softbox, and use it often.

Having used Photoflex gear for over twenty five years, I have always relied on their excellent build quality and performance. All soft boxes, umbrellas and reflectors are color correct for perfect color temperature and made with state-of-the-art fabrics and construction. Very versatile for artistic lighting, Photoflex gear is also easy to set up and pack when shooting on location.
