Lighting 103: Introduction
Posted on Thursday January 12, 2017

Abstract: Our flashes are calibrated to produce white light. But in the real world, white light is a rarity.



Sara Lando (your mollusk portraitist from Lighting 102) gives a thumbs up while spending a week assisting for photographer Gregory Heisler (seen squinting through camera).

She was assisting Greg for a week of shooting and teaching at Gulf Photo Plus in Dubai. Sara learned a ton of stuff, duly reported on in a three-part series that to this day remains one of the most popular pieces ever written on this site.

Many of the things she learned while following Greg around had little to do with photography: his work ethic, thought process, etc. (Seriously, read the series.) But the week also changed the way Sara thought about light, her most important takeaway being this:

"White light is a lie."

Act Fast: Free Lighting in Layers DVD Promo at Midwest
Posted on Thursday December 08, 2016



Quick heads-up on a great deal: Midwest Photo is giving away a free 7-DVD set of Lighting in Layers (more info on the DVDs, here) with every single Jumpstarter kit purchased, while supplies last.



The Jumpstarter kits are already a great value. The no-flash kit actually costs less than the DVDs themselves, at $142.99. But no matter which kit you might be considering—the no light, single-light, add-a-light, or two-light version—the DVD set addition makes it an even better value.


Two things to know:

1. You have to enter the code HOBBYSHIP at checkout.
2. The deal also includes free UPS ground shipping within continential US. You have to calculate shipping before you enter the code. But it should take it off after the code is entered, if you choose Ground UPS and live in the lower 48.

You can learn more about the core components of the kits here, in Lighting 101.

Links to the various versions of the Jumpstarter kits follow below:


Lighting Kit WITHOUT Flash ($142.99)

Lighting Kit WITH LumoPro LP180 Flash ($271.99)

Add-A-Light Kit ($198.00) (Includes LP180 flash, but no Ares remote)

2-Light Kit ($469.99) (Includes 2 LP180 flashes, remote, stands, umbrellas, case, etc.)
