Other people spent today celebrating Valentine’s day, I got to play with new photography equipment – total win for me in my eyes.
I recently purchased some new strobe lights, the Xlite strip lights from Kayell Australia, and I was excited to test them out to see what they can do.
Luckily my wife agreed to be in front of the camera for me this time, so I set up an improvised little studio. It was a joy to use the new strip lights compared to my old equipment. I love how close the strip lights can get without blowing out the subject.
This was only a quick test shoot ( I might give a more detailed review on the lights at a later date), but I am pleased so far with how the light is controlled and how easy the light boxes set up and take down. This will certainly help in future Portrait shootings, which I’m really excited about.
