Between the Sheets with Jen Rozenbaum

This summer has been incredible busy here, and I know I have not been blogging as much as I should. The good news is I have a ton of blog posts that I am working on about posing real women and some fun lighting tips. I had a fantastic time presenting at Adorama back in July and I was really excited to be asked to write for the new Shutter Magazine. Adorama asked me to present again come fall, so I am thinking of presenting posing for real woman, who doesn’t want to know more about that?!

My other exciting news is that I am partnering with Westcott. Westcott has a fantastic line of lights and accessories for all types of photography. I fell in love with the Ice Light they make when I taught at After Dark back in May. It has such clean, pretty light – fantastic for boudoir.

I will be blogging about the Ice Light- next – but today I am going to talk about the Spiderlite TD6

There are so many advantages to using the Spiderlite TD6s. First of all, I am mostly a natural light shooter. There are many days in my studio that are super cloudy and stormy and there just isn’t enough light to work with. The Spiderlites are a perfect solution. I just popped on a large softbox and boom, it’s just like a window! (As an awesome bonus, they are daylight balanced). ~See photos below.

The lights are adjustable which is also fantastic so I can really control the look I am going for. As you can see in the photo below there are three on/off switches. You can use them all on, or in any other combo of on/off that you want. Oh and one other thing I have to mention – they were easy to set up!! Even for me!

I couldn’t wait to set them up and play when I got them, but I only had about 15 minutes before my client arrived. I was able to unpack, set up and grab a few adorable shots of the ladies of Jenerations all in that time.

Another item that I was excited to get was the reflector kit. Yes, I have about 3 or 4 reflectors around the studio that I have collected over the years – but this one is by far the best. I love the arm that they designed. It’s incredibly flexible in any angle and it’s easy and light weight – great to travel with. I prefer the silver side most of the time – but there are 5 other options as well.

I can’t wait to give a write up about the Ice Light and the fun I have been having with it. That is coming soon! Please let me know if you have any questions about the Westcott lights – I am happy to help and loving every minute of using them!

Happy Lighting..
