So the other week Westcott lighting posted one of my fashion photography images on their instagram page which was exciting. The image was taken by me in Canmore Alberta on a fashion shoot there.
I have been using Westcott lighting modifiers from the beginning of when I started using speedlights. Recently I have found myself in the studio a lot more and using Broncolor Siros monolights and modifiers like the Broncolor Para 133 and Octabox 150 but I still find myself going back to Westcott lighting modifiers quite often.
Most of the time when I am on location it isn’t always that convenient to be carrying around all of my Broncolor modifiers as they all tend to be larger modifiers that I use in my creative space. Bron does have a huge array of modifiers and many are very easy to transport but the ones I purchase have been big as I love large light sources in studio.
This leaves me with a need for lightweight modifiers that are easy to carry on my own and also are able to withstand the abuse of professional photography use. There are two modifiers that I use a lot on location and those are the Rapid Box which is so light, small and easy to use with a speedlight then I also get lot of use out of the Apollo modifier which nowadays gets used mainly with Broncolor Siros 800S monolights on location although I did use a triple speedlight setup with it for a long time and still would if the need arises.
I love the build quality and convenience of both of those Westcott modifiers and as the price point is so reasonable on them I never worry about taking them anywhere, especially on flights.
