Lighting for Both Stills and HD VideoFROM LITE LESSONS: Friday June 22, 2012 These days, even the most modest of digital cameras can produce high quality imagery. Now anyone can take beautiful photographs and videos under any lighting conditions, right? Well, not exactly. Yes, modern cameras (and many cell phones) can capture good quality images, but it takes beautiful light to make beautiful pictures. Fortunately, beautiful light is often simple light.

Extending Daylight IndoorsFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday September 1, 2016 There are basically two types of lighting you can use when it comes to still photography: strobe/flash lighting and continuous/available lighting.Strobes or camera flashes produce daylight-balanced lighting, but it can be tricky foretelling how this burst of light is going to look on your subject until after the shot is actually taken. Continuous or available light, on the other hand, is nice because you can see the quality of the light before you actually take the shot.Until recently, most continuous lighting…

Three-Light Portrait: More Lights, More ChoicesFROM LITE LESSONS: Sunday July 1, 2012 The more lights you have in your studio, the greater the variety of lighting setups you can achieve.

Recreating Loft Style LightingFROM LITE LESSONS: Tuesday August 23, 2016 Equipment:OctoDome nxt: Extra SmallThis technique looks easy because the results are so clean and uncluttered, but there are a few tricks that make it all work. Markow pays homage to Penn with his construction of a large surrounding reflector and gobo (go-between) to create shadowless, yet interesting lighting. The approach also reduces lens flare by protecting the camera from much of the back light.In the 1940s, when super dramatic low key lighting dominated countless ‘film noir’ movies in Hollywood, high key…

Baby Portraits with the XS OctoDome KitFROM LITE LESSONS: Monday June 25, 2012 What's the difference between a good baby portrait and a great baby portrait? Well, the answer is debatable, but most professional photographers would probably agree it all comes down to lighting. After all, you can have a cute baby and a nice background, but if the lighting is poor (read: unnatural looking), the shot will certainly fall short of what it could have been. This lesson illustrates the difference, and walks you step-by-step through the process of creating great baby portraits.…

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.

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. Photoflex Octodomes produce wonderful light, and with a grid installed I find I can control almost any on-location lighting situation. Photoflex reflectors in my equipment case, too, have been with us the entire ride - doing their job as well as on Day One.
