Trying out the D-Lite 4's in anger this weekend

As part of the Camera Clubs Studio Shoot this weekend, I'll be taking along the D-Lite 4's for a trial . Will be interesting to see what shots we get from this setup

I'll post some shots up accordingly, & if lucky might have a few more of togs share theirs too

<UPDATE> as promised :- http://www.pixalo.com/community/phot...kit-22734.html

...or not being able to take the model home after the shoot, just the lights.

Re: Trying out the D-Lite 4's in anger this weekend

Well just back from the shoot & the lights perfomed well Between all the Togs we probably fired off 300 shots. Tried many different combinations of lighting , plus "Hoffy" kindly became a human tripod for a while

One thing for sure though, I could do with a larger softbox in long run

Will post up shots later

Re: Trying out the D-Lite 4's in anger this weekend

Dave - I know that the kit came with softboxes, but have you considered umbrellas? If you have rejected these, what were the reasons? I've always thought that they were more flexible than softboxes as you can use them for reflected light or fire through them, plus you can get silver or white etc.

Re: Trying out the D-Lite 4's in anger this weekend

Problem with umbrellas is the light spill, which can be hard to control in a small room (eg, bouncing off walls, ceiling etc) . I will get some for the studio shoot in the Regency house we use in Cheltenham, as very large rooms with high ceilings.

Then there's the Snoot, grids, barn doors , reflectors /// Defintely will go for the snoot soon though, as like the control it gives you
