Before we get into the lighting and the tech parts of this lesson, I want to say that most of the hard work was already done before the shoot even started.

Outdoor Portraits in HawaiiFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday September 4, 2014 Oahu is paradise, and truly a photographer’s heaven. I brought some of my camera gear with me in to take some nice portraits of family members. For the natural light images I used a Photoflex LitePanel with the White/Soft Gold fabric.

The reason for this is to determine how well the model can follow directions, and to establish a routine of not holding a pose for longer than three seconds. By utilizing butterfly lighting as a starting point, I do not intimidate the subject with an array of lights, backdrops, c-stands, and other items. A new model walking…

Photoflex as a company makes very good products. I own a few reflectors, reflector holders and I find their materials to be a lot better in quality.

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.

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.
