The Lumi II 400 Clamshell Lighting Kit has been Designed with the Commercial, Beauty and Portrait Photography industries in mind, with the simple one light set up this kit offers the ability to produce a soft, glowing light that flatters the subject to create quality headshot finishes. The traditional one-light Clam-shell is achieved by placing the Lumi II 400W flash unit with in-built receiver and fast recycling times, above your subject using the included Sturdy and Durable 2 in 1 Boom stand to hold the light out of the way of your frame. Using the 120 Recessed Softbox attached to the light will help to give an even soft light over the subject and thanks to the 5 in 1 collapsible reflector you are able to bounce the light upwards underneath the chin of your subject to provide a subtle fill light and reduce contrast. This is the go-to lighting set up for many photographers including commercial headshot as well as beauty and portrait photographers.
