Up and Running with the Small LiteDome KitFROM LITE LESSONS: Thursday July 5, 2012 One of the biggest factors that gets overlooked by portrait photographers is the quality of light they work with. For many, the main objective is to simply illuminate their subjects with a flash of light (typically provided by a built-in or shoe mount flash) and to make sure their camera is configured to properly expose the shot. The problem, of course, is that this type of light is not natural (unless you think pointing a flashlight in someone's eyes is natural),…

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.
