Dramatic Lighting Kit

The Speed Snoot boasts a newly designed mounting system for quick, easy attaching and detaching along with a collapsible design for easy storage. This two Speed Snoot setup is my personal favorite choice for creating dramatic portraits using two off-camera speedlights. The Speed Snoots blocks light spill and help you keep complete control.
Use one Speed Snoot as a main light and the second as a hair light along with a Color Gel for high-impact portraits.
The color gel tabs fit directly inside, giving you the ability to create dramatic background lighting, dramatic hairlight, or by using radical custom white balancing techniques you can actually change the color of the entire world around your subject. Turn any environment into a professional studio in a matter of seconds, giving you the ultimate in creative control.
Lightsphere + SnootSkin
If you don’t own a Lightsphere® Collapsible™ or are looking to add to your lighting set-up, this Creative Expansion System is for you. For hair lighting or creating a spotlight for effect, simply unfold the SnootSkin and slide it into the included Lightsphere® Collapsible™.
Add the Grid Insert for an even tighter directional beam. Or use the Lightsphere® and White Dome alone to soften the flash, control the light in low ceiling environments or achieve accurate white balance in mixed lighting.

The Speed Snoot gives photographers maximum efficiency and directional control over on-camera or off-camera lighting, allowing one to create cutting edge, “fashion style” special effects.
The black finish of the Speed Snoot blocks light from spilling out of the sides instead of illuminating the room. You can project the light directly onto your subject with a controlled, yet soft burst ideal for hair highlight, selective lighting of subjects, or highlighting a subject against a busy background.
Create dramatic low key lighting and stunning spotlight portraits, anywhere, anytime. Outdoors, you can turn day into night, and discover limitless creative control over your lighting.
The GrayDome™ is a powerful tool that every photographer shouldn’t be without. Rather than relying on your camera’s auto white balance settings, our (the) GrayDome™ Color Correction tool allows you to measure accurate color using the Custom White Balance feature on your camera.
The shape of this 18% grey color calibration dome ensures that light from all directions is calculated in the measurement of your subject, guaranteeing spot-on accurate color in a matter of seconds.

The SnootSkin™ is designed to fit snugly inside the Lightsphere® Collapsible™, converting it into a Snoot (spotlight) or color light source. The black lining of the SnootSkin blocks light from spilling through the sides of the flash, allowing light to be isolated and directed precisely. The SnootSkin, like the Lightsphere Collapsible, folds into a flat disk for easy storage.
For more precise spot lighting, a Grid Insert is included for an even tighter beam. Directional beam lighting is essential for hair lighting or creating a spot light for a dramatic effect. The system is also designed to hold Color Inserts. The included Color Insert (half CTO) is great for warming your subject, especially in indoor tungsten lighting.

Great for a variety of lighting situations, including outdoor photos at dusk or early morning, outdoor photos in open shade, interiors with tungsten lighting or portrait photography at sunset with the sun behind your subject.
The WhiteDome™, which comes with the Lightsphere® Universal™ and Collapsible™ product lines, allows you to reduce the amount of light ommited from the top of your Lightsphere®. This is ideal in low hanging ceiling environments where the bounce light is too strong.
ALSO: To achieve an accurate white balance in mixed lighting, use the WhiteDome™ to take a custom reading. Produce professional results with a tool you already have on-hand or add another to your gear bag for quick balancing on the go.
