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.

    Starts smoking if used under studio conditions

    I bought 4 of these as lights to take out on location (my studio is fitted out with 5 Alien Bees). Since these are small and cheap - I figured that I could keep them in my vehicle for some impromptu shoots.I set up one of the NEEWER 300W Studio Photographic Strobe/Flash units to do some testing in the studio. I set it up with an umbrella - with the light aimed upwards at about a 45-degree angle (so that any heat from the modeling lamp would rise away from the light).After just 2 hours - it started to smoke. I suspect that one of the capacitors overheated and melted.Afterwards - I re-read the instructions which indicate that you can only use the flash a couple minutes at a time, followed by 5 minutes of non-use.That certainly is not something that is very useful for a studio shooting situation.I'm glad that I didn't spend too much on these, and since they are cheap, I am going to tear one apart to see if there is a way to mount some kind of... 2/5 James in MPLS - See all my reviews I bought 4 of these as lights to take out on location (my studio is fitted out with 5 Alien Bees).

    Solid compact flash

    I have to say this light was more than I was expecting for the money. I have shot many years as a professional doing both commercial and portrait photography and was suprised at the performance of this light for the money. While I do not shoot for a living anymore I wanted lights that were portable and could be used for portraiture. At 300 watt seconds it is more than enough power for portraiture even with softboxes. What surprised me the most about this light when I first saw it was its small size - about the size of a one pund coffee can but a little longer. It is smaller than it looks in the pictures due to the fact that the buttons are small, but very usable. How much light does it put out, well with ISO 200 I had a good exposure at f11 @ 16ft using it direct with its built in reflector, this calculates to a guide number of 88 for ISO 100 in feet. The light was even and covered the field of view for a 28mm equivalent lens. It has continuous modeling and flash output from... 5/5 Honest Shopper (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I have to say this light was more than I was expecting for the money.

    You can't go wrong at the price

    At $69, this unit is easily 1/3 the price of other similarly-rated monolights. That in itself makes it a great option if you want to get your feet wet with monolight usage. The light works as you would expect and produces plenty of light. I can't comment on how long it will last, and I don't even know if you can replace the bulbs, but I've taken it out 3 times so far, and shot about 150 shots with it without problems.The recycle time is very short, and at full power seems within specs at maybe just below 3 seconds.The power range doesn't seem very wide. At it's lowest power setting it's still plenty bright. You may have to back it up manually from the subject, or bounce it off an umbrella.There is no auto-dump setting, meaning that when you lower the power you will need to hit the test button to dump the power.The beep that indicates it's ready is a bit loud, and can't be turned off. That means I can't play with it while everyone... 5/5 SomeNYCGuy - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) At $69, this unit is easily 1/3 the price of other similarly-rated monolights.

    It could be triggered by a flash, infrared and sync cord (included). It also comes with a test button and variable dial for power setting from 1/8 to full.
    This is a 300ws Flash Strobe (master/slave strobe).
    This strobe is typically used for background, fill, or highlighting. It easily creates a wide-dispersion glow when used with the gel set (not included).
    The Studio Light is providing you with a Continues Lamp and Flash Function.It will work as main light, back light or hair light.
    A studio kit with only two strobes can achieve tremendous results, but adding a third light for backgrounds or highlights will set you a part from the competition.

    PocketWizard Remote Camera triggering problems

    The two PocketWizards Plus III I received recently seemed to work well in all modes when syncing remote flash units using a D700 or D200 Nikon cameras as masters. However, when the time came to operate the D700 remotely, problems started. It is regretable that PW is not specific about the cables or the cost of the cables required to trigger the camera. After spending $139 each for the two units, I discovered I had to invest another $85-$95 for the correct cable. To my surprise, I discover that the cable would keep the camera "awake" at all times, making it useless for long, unatended sessions due to the heavy battery drain on the Nikon D200/D700.I was able to operate the camera on any channel at the published distances but always with the camera in the "awake" state. So my next move was to order the mysterious -acc cable (another $85) to allow pre-trigger operation without depleting the camera battery. That cable didn't do the job either. I read the PW manual cover to... 4/5 Julian Angus (Florida) - See all my reviews, August 27, 2012

    It works like a CHARM

    0 5/5 Abduljalil Al-Nasser (Saudi Arabia) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: PocketWizard Plus III Transceiver Black (Electronics) I've used many wireless triggering solutions, they all just stopped working after some time and even when they were working, they weren't that reliable, they miss a lot of shots, they don't work at some locations!I didn't switch to pocket wizard plus II because I was waiting for the plus III to come out, and it was worth waiting for! It's everything they said about the plus II and much more! The new design is beautiful, the digital menu is easy to use and fast to access. I just love it! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 25, 2012

I love the Multimax-like zones you can set up and easily control as well as the new build.So far, so good. Rock solid and no misfires - but I expect no less from PocketWizard.My weddings just got so much easier to shoot with the ease of sharing zones with my assistant or turning off zones when I don't need 'em.I will be buying more. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 25, 2012
