We would like to say a big thank you, our Video lighting has been depleted and the stock we had expected to last to the end of April has sold out. We still have stocks in our video lighting and continuous lighting categories with plenty of stock of the quad light the lightbank 350 and redhead lighting. A new shipment of out of stock items does not arrive until 19th April, we do apologise for this and will be increasing our stock holding to keep up with demand with shipments arriving monthly. If you are looking for studio flash lighting kits then we have good stocks of all studio flash models.

We have just received a shipment of cotton muslin backdrops so have plenty in stock including Chromakey Blue, Chromakey Green, White, Black, Grey in 3 sizes 8 x 12 ft, 8 x 16 ft and 10 x 20 ft. Not forgetting Chromakey green popup and the black and white popup backgrounds.

We are reducing the Lightbank 350 2 head kit for 4 weeks until our new stock arrives.

Portrait Photography with Continuous Lighting

Gavin Hoey explores with the use of our 3 head super softbox continuous lighting kit to take portraits and shows different effects that can be achieved. This is an alternative to studio flash for taking portraits, the main advantage is that you see what you get which is good for beginners.

It uses energy saving compact fluorescent balanced daylight bulbs which means that they produce great light and not much heat compared with redhead type tungsten lighting. Suitable for not only portrait photography but it can be used as video lighting and for product photography.
