Product Details

Erin Manning is a professional photographer, teacher and television personality. She helps people understand photography and technology by translating technical mumbo-jumbo into everyday words with a friendly teaching style in this PocketBox Flash Softbox Kit. Erin takes you along on multiple photo shoots to explain the basics about on-camera and off-camera flash.

Each lesson guides you step-by-step through camera operation, flash settings, posing and capturing candid shots of your subjects. You'll also see what can go wrong on a photo shoot and how to remedy the problem. The included educational DVD uses real people in real-life situations to provide an understanding of how to use your camera, flash and PocketBox together to produce amazing results. If you've felt intimidated by this equipment in the past, don't worry! Erin's down-to-earth teaching style makes everything easy to understand.

The PocketBox softens harsh light and eliminates red eye for professional quality images. The PocketBox is also the perfect solution to fill in shadows when using available window light.

We'll even show you the dos and don'ts of taking your flash off the camera and how this affects your camera and flash settings as well as teaching the basics of taking your camera off automatic to use manual settings.

Understand how to compose more interesting photos through the rule of thirds and lens options, and how to utilize the various PocketBox sizes and shapes to improve your photos.

The Pocketbox's ultra-reflective silver interior maximizes light output. All PocketBoxes come with a removable inner diffusion panel that helps spread the light for a soft, even output. The front of the boxes are built with a heavy-duty, flexible wire framework (no plastic to break).
