How many times have we all taken images and our subject just blended in with the background or those gorgeous bright blue eyes on a child looked lifeless? Whether shooting film or digital, there is one thing that sets an average image apart from a great image ? lighting. Learning how to control the light onto your subject will bring your image to life. The PB500 Light offers 500 watts of constant light. No need for meters and slaves, as constant light allows you to see the image prior to capture just as your camera would.

The Two Light Kit offers a quick portable set up with everything needed to obtain great images. The main light illuminates your subject(s) while the fill light lessens shadows and lowlights while still achieving depth and contour. Included is a 5-ft. x 8-ft. Slate Gray background along with two Large 3M Command Strips. These strips attach quickly to a wall or window allowing you to hang your background instantly. A floor-positioning mat directs you on placement of your lights, camera and subject(s). The Instructional DVD will walk you through how to operate and understand your digital camera, step-by-step set up of your kit, lighting and posing, along with many tips and techniques to enhance your images.

Kit Includes: 1-Yellow Constant Light, 1-Red Constant Light - each with removable 13-ft power cord and reflector; 2-7.5-ft Light Stands, 2-45-in Silver/White Umbrellas; 2-500-watt Photofloods; 1-5-ft x 8-ft. Slate Gray Background with bag; 2- 3MTM CommandTM Strips; 1-Floor positioning Mat; 1-Instruction Sheet; 1-Floor Mat Instructional Card; 1-Instructional DVD; 1-carry case.

Comments about Westcott Westcott Photo Basics 2-Light Kit with Background (PB500):

The floor layout seems kinda weird with the flowers and such it would be nicer if it was a blank floor layout with marks where to put the light. It makes it so you have to remember where to put the light on each flower or square or dot, but everything else is great and I would suggest it to anybody who is wanting to start portrait photography.
