Jeff Smith's Lighting for Outdoor & Location Portrait Photography

Creator: Jeff Smith | 2007-06-01

A flash tube for my Alien Bees costs about $30, as opposed to the $150 to $200 for the other brands of lights I use. Don't sell your current lighting equipment to buy Alien Bees, but when you are in the market for new lights, ...

About this book
Shattering the notion that location lighting has to be difficult, inconvenient, or compromised in its quality, this resource provides guidance on how to create unique and personalized images shot in parks, on city streets, at sports arenas, in workplaces, or in a client’s home. With an overview of equipment and a discussion on the essential tools for a shoot, this guide walks photographers through the creation of dozens of location images—from casual headshots to full-length, formally posed portraits. With strategies for meeting lighting challenges found outside of the studio—from evaluating existing light to modifying or supplementing light as needed—this book will help photographers shoot confidently by developing a plan for creating professional-quality location portraits.

    Alot better than I was expecting

    0 5/5 Dean Scott - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Fotodiox Pro 24"x80" Strip Softbox for Studio Strobe/Flash with Soft Diffuser and Dedicated Speedring, for Alien Bees, Alienbees, Strobe Flash Light B400, B800, B1600, Soft box, Speed Ring (Electronics) I admit, when I first saw a strip box of this size for the price, I really thought it was gonna be made cheaply and of poor quality. I was wrong. The outter shell is thick vinyl and doesn't allow any stray light out. This thing is very large but is ideal for the use that I have planned. I like it enough that I'm placing an order for another one soon. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 16, 2015

    A pretty good deal for a large-ish diffuser! You'll definitely need to get your Zen on to put it together!

    Not an Octagon, but a Hexadecagon!I was looking for a big diffuser and lept upon this one because it seemed like a good deal. And it's actually pretty good. Not too expensive, not too small. But it's probably not going to be making too many trips with me. The ONLY problem that I have with it (which is more indicative of my inexperience, than the product itself) is: once it's put together, you're not going to want to break it down for storage or transport. Again, not a flaw of the product, but my expectations.The attached shot is with the diffuser on a StudioPro SDX400, cranked down to 1.6. From the front of the diffuser to the model is approx. 10 feet, shot (quick and dirty) with an 11-16 mm lens from 2-3 feet away. I like that this allows me to get close without casting a great, harsh shadow on my subject. Not what I'd do every time, but I just wanted to do a quick experiment.I saw from the photos that I'd have to assemble it myself, but... 4/5 Patrick D.

    Don't waste your money on this octabox!

    0 1/5 Jackson A. Niday (Colorado Springs, CO United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: CowboyStudio 36" 16 Rods Octagon Softbox with Grid for Alien Bee Monolight Strobe Studio (Electronics) Very poorly made. The materials are much lighter duty than similar boxes that I own from other manufacturers. Moreover, when the box is assembled, the Velcro closures at the speed ring don't meet. There's space between the slits leaving light leaks through the back of the box. Would not purchase again. Highly recommend anyone considering this to purchase a higher quality modifier if you can possibly afford it. 0, July 8, 2015
    List Price: $78.00
    Diameter of the octa box is 36"
    Included diffusers will allow for a soft-look while the grid can assist you with glare reduction.

    Works well for it's price, got some pretty awesome results with it.

    I did a class recently in Atlanta showcasing what you could do with a cheap strobe nowadays and bought this one. The bottom line is it works well and you can get amazing results, but don't expect much from the build quality.I found the strobe plasticy to the touch, the umbrella holder is tension based and not screw based, and adjusting the tilt of the light very clackity. If held at certain angles the Phottix II stratos used to trigger the light for the class didn't fire the light, so don't know if there's an issue with the sync port or not, just happened consistently.During use those the light worked extremely well and produced consistent results. I've attached a few shots from the event up to show the results you can get using this $50 light, a $30 umbrella modifier, and a $20 craigslist special 100-200 lens.At $50 I would say this is a no brainer of a buy for anyone interested in starting studio lighting, or having an extra light as a kicker... 4/5 Trent Chau Photography "Photographer" (Atlanta) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    When I was buying this item I looked on every website to find any review of this producted, but there was none. Any ways hope this will help you guys if you want to buy it.Let start with the carrying case, you would love the quality of the carrying case, enough space to carry the gear and even space for extra storage, the material is really nice.The softboxes come in two sizes 50x70 and 60x60, there is no instruction manual so you will have to figure out y ourself how to assemble it, but dont worry its not very difficult to assemble the soft boxes. The site says one of the umbrellas is silver and one in black, but i received two silver umbrellas 33" the barn door is so easy to assemble and with different colours.The materials does not look cheap at all, the stands are stable, the flash re-cycle time in full power is about 8-9 seconds and in half power it takes about 4 seconds to recycle.. The trigger working perfect and the rest of the flash are... 4/5 J Azizi - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Glad I got it.

    0 3/5 squarepeg_photography - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Neewer® 180W Strobe/Flash Light for Studio, Location and Portrait Photography (Electronics) Plenty of power for my small studio (aka, the basement). I have noticed a little quirk, though; If I don't use the modeling light, it doesn't recognize the sync cable after one picture. With the modeling light on, the sync cable works every time as long as you wait the 3-4 seconds to recharge.UPDATE: Raised the light stand and tightened the screws ever so slightly and the mounting barrel broke. Wrapped with packing tape to keep it on the stand. Amazingly, I'm still glad I bought it but now it's just 3 stars. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 16, 2013
