About Lastolite

• The HiLite backgrounds range allows the photographer to work in a way that was extremely difficult to achieve in the past, High Key' photography on location and in restrictive spaces.
• By rear lighting the white background itself there is no longer a need to use a background light behind the subject. Furthermore, because the background is actually illuminated it means the subject can stand virtually right in front of it without casting a shadow.
• The HiLite backgrounds also works as a large rear softbox and illuminates the subject as well, meaning you can use just one other flash head to light the subject from the front. What's more, the whole thing is collapsible.

Easily the most versatile studio item

This is a product that lets your imagination run wild. Outside of it's obvious uses, try clipping a piece of fabric with a design, (like lace), over it. Instant new look.

This is a product that lets your imagination run wild. Outside of it's obvious uses, try clipping a piece of fabric with a design, (like lace), over it. Instant new look. Solid color fabric gives a new background. Turn the main light off, and you have instant silhouette. Add main light with a snoot and you get silhouette with soft face detail. Different color gels in each side light produces a nice grandaunt of color in the background. Adding just a bit of light behind a chroma ley cloth eliminates pesky shadows when the model is standing close to the background. Perfect for small shooting areas. I know it's expensive, but I wish I'd bought it a long time ago!!

Everything it's claimed to be!

By

from NY  -  Pro Photographer

I am super happy with my purchase! I have been doing a lot of digital background work and was getting tired of the green cast from my green screen. This background provided the perfect high key look and made extracting subjects a piece of cake. I am planning on selling off all of my backdrops and will be using this exclusively along with my own digital backdrop designs. No more struggling and wasting time switching out backdrops for me. I used 2 AB400 lights...each set at just under half power. I used my beautiful grand daughter as my first subject and was immediately hooked. I was even able to fold it up after just a few minutes of practice. Best purchase I have made in a long time!

Excellent 'on location' white background

By

from Hartford CT  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Use on locationExcellent for consistent high key Photography6x7 big enough to light person/grps I wanted to.Learn how to fold it up first! If not, you'll be there for hours.Don't buy the train. Not long enough. Went to [...] and got 1 piece of white wall panel that works even better.

Great Product

By

from Ferndale, WA  -  Semi-Professional

The very first time I used the Lastolite Background, I was able to shoot the best high key shots I have ever gotten. It took me less than 1/2 the amount of time to set-up, and 1/2 the space.

Simple solution for high key

By

from San Rafael, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I bought this as a simple solution for doing high key in small spaces. It was simple to set up and use. Allowed us to put the subject close to the background with minimal shadow or light spill. Was a challenge to close up. Took 2 of us a half an hour to figure out how to close it, and I am a frequent portable reflector user so I thought I would be a whiz at this process. After much wrestling and sweating it just closed properly. Whew.

The High Key Solution

By

from Kansas City  -  Semi-pro Photographer

You cannot beat this portable setup for high key shots. All four sides unzip for several illuminating flash options. The included support bars make this unit self standing--a big plus to avoid carrying another stand. Results are great with any type of strobe.

Great item

By

from willymayorgac[@]  -  Professional

I was doubtful about the amount of light I would need to light the background for a high key portrait. I used one FL110i (Smith Victor) strobe on each side. I was amazed when I found out that I had to decrease the power to half since both strobes would provide great ilumination. It also works as a big softbox!
