B&H Photo Introduces the “Westcott Scott Kelby Studio Kit” featuring Westcott’s TD-5 SpyderLites
OK, it’s not a beautiful view of the kit (it’s from B&H’s site), but it’s the same Lighting kit (using Westcott’s TD-5 SpiderLites) I’ve been using on my Lightroom Live! Tour (not to be confused with B&H’s Scott Kelby Location Kit, which isn’t lighting at all—it’s diffusers, stands, Justin clamps, and reflectors for shooting with multiple wireless dedicated flashes, like Nikon SB-800s or Canon Speedlights).
Once you see these these SpiderLites in person, you have to have one (OK, two). Having continuous, cool, daylight fluorescent studio lighting that’s always on, and they’re so easy to work with it’s like cheating, is just incredibly compelling once you see it live. (I did a studio shoot using SpiderLites and my buddy Terry White came along, and he was so impressed with them, that he got online and ordered his right in the lobby of his hotel when I dropped him off that night).
Anyway, the good news is that B&H Photo has put together this kit, using the same lights, and backdrop I use in the live shoot at my seminar. The bad news? Just like my location kit; it’s already sold out. However, you can visit the page on B&H’s site (click here) and get on their email notification list, so as soon as it’s back in stock, they’ll email you right away.
One last note: B&H photo put this kit together after receiving so many requests from students at my seminars. I don’t get a kick-back, or a cut, or…well…. anything from the sale of these kits—B&H put it together as a courtesy to make things easier for my students. So even if you buy 50 kits, it won’t help send my kids to college (although it will probably send somebody’s kid at B&H Photo’s to a really nice university. Probably Harvard).
