You guys, I had the best weekend, and I had to share it with you!!!
I’ve only played with this little number for 2 days, but I have to tell you – it is rocking my photography world. I am absolutely and completely flipped out, crazy nuts over this.
Now, you may think this is a non-food related post. But, it is. It totally is.
This is what I was using for lighting equipment, and I loved them. Lowell EGO lights.
But, they were big, took a lot of tabletop real-estate and were not easy to manuever.
Then, in comes the Grand Opening of a local camera store this weekend (they moved into a huge new location), and it was a 3-day action-packed weekend with free classes, discounts and major sales (like lighting and tripods! :-)).
Reps from all the various manufacturers were there: Nikon, Canon, Manfrotto, Wescott – you name it. = My DREAM. I took the most awesome lighting class and I came home more jazzed than I have in a longgggg time.
I wanted to share the totally cool things I got – as well as introduce you to some life-savers if you struggle with the same things I do: (1) you don’t have an assistant handy and (2) have lighting issues because you have to shoot most of your photography at night (raising hand and waving it wildly in the air).
To say I indulged is a bit of an understatement.
Here’s the other side of the Ice Light package. Meet my newest BFF.
Totally portable. Hand-held or attach it to a boom for hands-free lighting. Adjustable, maneuverable, lightweight and cordless. Simulates daylight. And with it’s maneuverability, you can create casts, shadows and scrapes of light. Front, side, back and this-way-that-way lighting – it does it. It’s a lighting rod. A light saber.
Wield it and let the force be with you. Did I really just say that? I didn’t even like Star Wars!
Anyway, she does totally cool and awesome things like this:
You don’t know what that is?
That’s ok. It don’t matter. 😉 The lighting is cool. (p.s. it’s my new tripod’s packaging).
Tada!…my other new BFF – my tabletop tripod. (I can have 2 BFFs. I can.)
Think you can’t buy friends?
Trust me. You can.
When I saw this babe in Chocolate Brown – MeFoto’s hottest new color? That baby was mine.
Both the Ice Light and the MeFoto in Chocolate Brown are new on the market. And… I.AM.IN.SERIOUS.LOVE. If you need these in your life – I highly recommend!
Cheers and good health!
