Product Details

This Perfect Portrait professional lighting kit includes a shallow softbox, which features a 30% reduction in depth compared to a standard softbox provides a greater punch of light. A 1/4-stop front diffusion softening the output of this softbox. Designed to be a perfect fit with our Spiderlite TD series, the 38" x 48" Shallow Softbox features a 1/4-stop front diffusion front compared to a standard full-stop diffusion front. When combined with the soft diffused nature of the fluorescent lamps, it provides just enough diffusion to make the light soft while still offering a punch of light to create depth and dimension with specular highlights.

This kit allows for the creation of dimension & depth by also including a stripbank. The included 40-degree Egg Crate Grid for 12" x 36" Stripbank is constructed with cells that control off-axis light in four directions while maintaining the soft quality inherent in a large light source. Additionally, as light is focused into a forward direction through use of an egg crate grid, it can help to eliminate spill light or lens flare.

The small lamps included in this kit pack a punch with over 1200 equivalent watts of power per light head, making them perfect for both photo & video. With today's technology, most cameras can capture amazing video as well. These constant lights are the perfect solution for anyone doing both photo and video as they are powerful enough to freeze action, and pure enough to capture amazing quality and color with video.

Here at Westcott, we only offer the best. After scouring the market for the perfect lamp, we decided the only option was to create our own. This lamp is custom-produced to true daylight color temperature. Don't settle for imitations that can shift color up to 400-degrees Kelvin. Unlike photofloods that only last up to 60 hours, these lamps are rated for over 8,000 hours of consistent performance and color.

Three separate controls allow the ability to adjust light output on both included Spiderlite TD6 lights, without changing color temperature. With an adjustable rheostat, every time adjustments are made, color temperature can shift greatly. By utilizing these switches, your color stays constant which means you are only white balancing your camera once! Each switch controls 2 lamps. The Spiderlite TD6 is constructed of all-metal with no need for additional brackets as this unit incorporates a built in adapter ring. Simply insert the soft box rods into the four openings. For easier set up, one softbox rod insertion point is cut out at the top. This allows the last soft box rod to simply slide into place.

The entire kit can be stored and transported with the included compact case, designed to easily wheel up to a 4-light kit anywhere. The handle simply pulls outward allowing you to wheel this case just as easily as you can wheel luggage.
