How To: Using a Light Kit Will Improve Your Photos

I love photography, but have never used a light kit until recently.

I prefer natural light when I shoot, but some days, even in sunny Texas, the lighting is subpar.

Here’s a video review of the light kit I own. Someone get the lights!

The light kit is inexpensive, but a little powerhouse.

~ It fits my needs and I use it in conjunction with natural lighting, especially if the lighting is a bit harsh (the umbrellas diffuse nicely).

~ The kit has improved the quality of my photos when available natural lighting is questionable.

~ The umbrella stands are easy and quick to set-up – easy on/off switches – everything stores compactly in a small bag.

Pro: the light bulb carry bag is brilliant.

Con: the bulbs are CFLs and I abhor CFLs. I’m looking into replacing them, ASAP.

For the price, this light kit is a stellar deal.

At the moment, mine is set up in my office for facebook live videos. They knock down the glare from my window and soften the images (images = me).

OMT likey!

I wouldn’t hesitate to buy this package again (it was a Christmas gift!) or gift it myself. I love it that much.

If you haven’t made the jump to a kit yet, you can hardly go wrong with this one.

Happy Shopping!
