In this video from SPTV, Bob Davis demonstrates how to perfectly light a couple during a real-life engagement session.

Chicago portrait and wedding photographer Bob Davis is a 25 year veteran of photography, specializing in speedlite shooting. Here, Bob utilizes speedlites modified with the Bob and Dawn Davis Perfect Pair Kit to capture beautiful portraits of his clients. By adding the softened flash, Bob is able to highlight features of his subjects, while balancing the unattractive ambient lighting.

The Perfect Portrait Kit includes a 45″ Halo, 28″ Apollo, a 40-degree Apollo grid, two adjustable shoe mount brackets, two light stands, and a travel bag. Built on an umbrella frame, Halo and Apollo light modifiers set up in seconds. They are perfect modifier for on-location shooting as they need no additional adapters or speedrings. The Halo series takes simplicity to a whole new level. Apollo and Halo frames are constructed using durable fiberglass components, with no plastic to break or metal to bend.
