Turn Off Your Flash For Digital Images; Continuous Light Sources Make A Comeback Page 2

I use a digitLITE 600 as a main light or as a beauty light placed below the model's face, in ways I formerly used a reflector back in the old film days to create the kind of look that requires the least amount of gear possible. There are photographers, like my wife Mary, who shoot with available light, but what she really means is "every light we have available." If we had 20 lights in the studio, she would use them all. The work would be perfectly gorgeous but I hate to schlep all that stuff. That's why the Sunpak works so well for my "shoot-and-scoot" style of photography.

The slim profile and daylight color balance of the Sunpak digitLITE 600 make it ideal for use as a main light for location photography. Here I photographed Kellie Alexander using the digitLITE 600 as a main light with window light as fill.

Product Photographs Made Easier
The Sharpics D-Flector is a unique reflective background that activates when photographed with a flash. The result is a picture with a clean white background with the object appearing to be floating on air. Used with these fluorescent lights, the D-Flector is a literal "background in a briefcase" that is perfect for professional photographers, web designers, or anybody who wants to document inventory or personal possessions. It's also ideal for making photographs when selling merchandise on eBay.
