In our field, gear matters, and you’d have to have a bank balance bigger than your bank account number for you to acquire all you likely would want when the whim takes you. However, if you keep your ear to the ground like we do, you come about the best photography deals currently on the market, and within our Deal Dashes, we share them with you:


Westcott 43″ Apollo Orb + Free 40 Degree Fabric Grid ($69 value) – $99

The first octagonal softbox that works without an adapter ring. The compact soft box simply opens like an umbrella. Place your flash inside, attach the included diffusion panel and you’re ready to shoot. The Orb has a deeper profile which evenly projects the light source for maximum output while creating round, natural catchlights in the eyes.
