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 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.

    Not bad for $400, folks.

    I am a semi-professional photographer, and I was looking for some lightweight, cheap strobes of decent power. These are budget strobes from the get-go, if you want professional products, you have to pay professional prices. Look at Broncolor or Profoto if you want high quality. Everything was well packed, but one of my strobes was dead on arrival. Sent it out, received it back in about a week. The plastic on everything is about average to better quality, nothing to call home about, but it gets the job done. I'll go down a list of the items.The strobes are adequately powerful for shooting through an umbrella or softbox in sub-7 ft distances at around 1/200 and f/8 at minimum power. The dial in the back has a 2-stop variability. This is NOT a lot of latitude when shooting, but it's not a make-or-break kind of thing for me. I calculated this simply by shooting at f/8 on minimum power and checking the histogram until it matched up, and it matched at f/16... 5/5 Jimmy Lamont (Tampa, Florida) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Excellent value with a few minor qubbles

    I needed a simple 'LIGHT' and portable studio to cart around for outside my studio shoots.This is one heck of a value and you cannot go wrong.I am amazed it is so inexpensive.The strobes are fast recharging and the quality for the money is excellent.If you want studio grade, you will need a fat wallet and a strong back. There is no reason to buy a $2000 set to bang around other than for ego.Let me address the 'quibbles' others have mentioned.1) Diffusor assembly. Keep the diffusor boxes assembled and you will only have to put them together one time. Who wants to keep reassembling them anyway - time is wasted on a shoot doing this. Take your time putting them together. It takes only a few minutes. They are simple to put together and do not need instructions (fat end of rods go in the strobe collars). Only beef is the Velcro in the rectangular box does not have the 'other half' to stabilize the ribs. So I went to the... 5/5 William I. Levy - See all my reviews, June 5, 2011

    0 4/5 October Way "October Way" - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I bought this kit months ago for school, and never had to use them until early this week. I handed in an assignment with great results. I am still learning lighting, but this is a great starter kit for the price and my student budget. There are directions but it helps if you have already trained on other professional lighting kits first. The cords/plugs that came with my lights were simply grounded - there is nothing "unusual" about them, so I'm not understanding the other review here. You just plug one end of the cord into the lighting unit and the other into - I use a power bar (for power tools) - an outlet that is suited for the plug. Every outlet in my house could handle these. I hope the kit lasts a while, it seems to work fine. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 21, 2011

    Light Kit

    0 2/5 Photograff "Tom" (Chicago, IL) - See all my reviews This review is from: Square Perfect 5080 SP3500 FLASH KIT Complete Portrait Studio Kit with Flashes Softboxes Gels and Barn Door (Electronics) Overall I wasn't impressed with the quality of this product. I am currently a 4th year college student and even at my "unprofessional" studio photography level, I found that this equipment was cheap and may break down over a short period of time. The photo of this product on Amazon doesn't clearly show the actual quality of the pieces in this kit. (for example, the light stands were flimsy and if taken outside would definitely fall with minor wind. Also the backdrops are NOT made out of muslin, but a cheaper quality that reminded me of a plastic picnic table cloth).I gave it two stars because at the VERY basic level this kit would suit your needs as a beginning studio photographer.I would strongly suggest contacting the seller before purchasing for information about quality of:Light standsBackdropsSize of reflectorSoftboxesUmbrella 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 8, 2009

    Solid Enough for a Stationary Studio

    I received this lighting kit for my birthday and to be entirely honest, I'd actually removed it from my wish list because of the bad reviews. My husband bought it for me anyway. I'm now glad he did. It's not fancy, it's not pro-quality, but it's actually a decently made kit. The strobes are good, the light stands (while flimsy) only require a sandbag to make them stable for the soft boxes. Even with a heavier stand a sand bag would be a necessity, I mean, soft box are heavy and throw off the balance of any stand. (Yes, I tried one on my single professional stand)I set everything up (a bit of a feat due to the sparse instructions, but if I can set it up I'm sure anyone could.) and the only set up issues I encountered were my difficulty getting the soft boxes put together and syncing the flashes for wireless.

    Fantastic Value and build quality but not 400 w/s

    I was doing research on trying to find an inexpensive alternative for a strobe that we would use on a college campus in the photo dept. Budget is always a concern and I wanted an inexpensive light that would serve us for head shots, more serious environmental portraits, occasional product shoots, and whatever else comes up.I bought this after reading many reviews and some guy that blogged about it. I found the light to be everything that was advertised. I was looking at Alien Bees as an alternative but the big drawback for me on all their stuff is their build construction as it pertains to how the speed rings attach to the front of the units. You can't use a very large light bank with any WL or AB product as if it's too heavy (or windy) the bank will tear right off the front of the strobe, sometimes taking with it the flashtube and modeling light.These are built right with all metal hardware where it connects to the stand, and it uses a standard Bowens... 4/5 Patrick M.

This review is from: Cowboystudio 400 Watt Photography Studio Monolight, Studio Strobe Light with 75 W Model Lamp (Electronics) I bought two and when I received them they came in different colors and slightly different models. I returned one and got a new one but still has a problem. The power adjustment should go from 10 to 60, which is the case for one of them, but the other can only go from 20 to 60. Not a huge deal, but it just shows the QC not very good. Otherwise the monolight is a solid build with good features, a bargain for the price if you get good quality ones. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 2, 2011

    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.

    Great multi-use light accessory

    First of all, this arrives in 2 separate boxes--and mine arrived on different days. One box contains the actual background, the corner supports, and a case both are installed in. The large, heavy studio stand comes in the separate box.You can use the background separately and put lights on tripods. I would absolutely use the stand if you are going to use it outside. This thing will catch a LOT of wind. It's easy to move around and self-supporting. One of the clips on the corner supports was broken in a spot, but it didn't affect the functionality of the unit.The stand is excellent! It's extremely heavy, more so on the bottom, and on wheels. It can be adjusted for height and angle. There are attachments built in for your lights which worked perfectly with my Alienbees lights. It's easy to finagle the lights in with the standard 7" reflectors--which you want to use to ensure the zippered sides don't damage either bulb.This background can... 5/5 L.

    A Great Bee Movie

    Anitra Ford stars as Dr. Susan Smith, an entomologist who has discovered a method for cross-pollinating women with bees. The process is very elaborate. A woman who is large-breasted and sexy is chosen to be their next inductee. She is lured into Dr. Smith's laboratory, a bee hive of activity as her assistants swarm about. Their latest victim is drugged, stripped naked and covered with a honey-like substance. She is then placed in a sealed chamber and zapped with radiation. Hundreds of bees are released in the chamber until they cover every inch of her body. A switch is thrown, the bees magically disappear, and the woman is removed from the chamber. The honey-like goop, which has hardened into a rubbery texture, is peeled off her body. Another switch is thrown and flashing lights swirl all around her.
