Studio Shoot with Spiderlite TD6s, Softboxes and Grid

By on 2012-04-17

Watch this studio shoot by photographer Scott Kelby using two Spiderlite TD6 units, with a Shallow Softbox and a Stripbank with Grid. This fun studio shoot involves a rock scene with fog, rock and roll equipment, and great lighting!

The Spiderlite TD6 is one of the best continuous light setups for a studio shoot because the photographer has the ability to see how the light patterns fall on their subjects face, and there is no guessing.  The Spiderlite TD6 features 1200 watts of continuous lighting and the photographer can choose whether to use daylight balanced or tungsten lights in this unit.  The light is adjustable with three switches on the back of the unit, allowing photographers to “dial down” the power for instances where you need less output.  The TD6 has a speed ring built right into the head making it easy for photographers to mount any four post box onto this unit, and modify the light even more.

Westcott Softboxes are backed by 5 year warranties making them some of the most durable in the industry.  Large softboxes are great for covering an entire person like in this full length outdoor portrait setup.  Stripbank boxes are great for a hair light or an edge light.
