The Bob and Dawn Davis Perfect Pair Kit includes 2 durable 8' light stands, 2 adjustable shoe-mount brackets with built-in tilting function, a 28-inch square Apollo Medium with a 40º Egg Crate Grid, a 45-inch round Halo, and a heavy-duty gear bag.
International wedding photographer Bob Davis is a force to be reckoned with. As a Canon Explorer of Light and a Westcott Top Pro Elite, Bob has perfected the art of portrait lighting with speedlites. Bob works diligently alongside his wife, Dawn, capturing stunning wedding portraiture for their Chicago-based studio. Together, they developed this kit to give portrait photographers around the world the ability to create beautiful lighting in a snap.
With a 28" square construction, we designed the Medium Apollo with versatility in mind. This light modifier is large enough to act as a key light source for headshots or product images, yet small enough to act as an accent light, giving you a range of lighting options.
With flexible framework and instant umbrella-style setup, these modifiers are designed for busy photographers. Each Apollo and Halo softbox packs up quickly and can be thrown into any gear bag for effortless travel and storage.
Do you shoot with both types of off-camera flash? Thanks to the Apollo and Halo’s versatile umbrella shaft, these modifiers can be instantly paired with both speedlites and strobes. With these softboxes, you won’t be confined to using a single lighting style or forced into buying various modifiers.
Unlike most softboxes, these modifiers are constructed with an umbrella-style frame. Not only does this allow for the instant assembly, but it also allows for quick strobe mounting without bulky speedrings or adapters.
Since their introduction in 1985, these umbrella-style softboxes have been enhanced based upon consumer requests. The latest Apollo design features a recessed edge, flexible fiberglass frame, and removable outer diffusion panel.
Our diffusion panels are constructed with a premium, all-natural unbleached nylon fabric. Unlike processed diffusion fabrics, these diffusers will soften your light source without altering its color temperature.
By directing your light source toward the Apollo’s included diffusion front, you’ll create drastic highlights with a subtle hot spot. By directing your unit towards the back of Apollo, you’ll create an even spread of light with softer shadows. You can even pick up an optional 40-degree Egg Crate Grid for more light control options.
Apollo softboxes are manufactured with a highly-reflective silver interior for optimized light output. This output can be precisely focused by placing your light source as close or as far from the back of the Apollo to achieve the look you desire.
“Of course my favorite lighting kit is the perfect pair for many reasons, one being versatile, I'm able to produce high quality of light from solo portraits to formals on location and the convenience of being fast setup and lightweight all a plus when working on location.”
Bob Davis, Top Pro Elite Photographer
“So I have officially jumped on the 28-inch Apollo soft box band wagon!”
Lucas Ridley, Filmmaker
“The 28-inch Apollo is the first light diffuser I grab for all my jobs. I love that it has baffles along the edges to control spill. It is perfect for shooting 1 or 2 people, and its very light.”
Sid Ceasar, Sid Ceasar Photography
“The Halo is one of my favorites for shooting on location. It's the perfect tool to give me that nice soft light.”
Joao Carlos, Top Pro Photographer
“The Westcott Halo is absolutely the fastest, quickest, easiest way to get a great portrait of brides, babies, couples, executive portraits - anything you can point the Halo will give you a great lighting result. It's convex design does the feathering of the light for you - automatically!”
