This awesome video tutorial comes from the folks of The Slanted Lens. Jay P. Morgan will show you how he put together a shoot for a world famous trick roper. He created two different looks; For the first look he froze the motion of the rope, for the second look he blurred the rope by dragging his shutter speed.

Speedlight? Video Light? Introducing the LED Light Cube

Speedlighter Gear Highlight: Interfit Strobies XS Bracket
Last week I highlighted the umbrella style softboxes for speedlights, today I wanted to highlight another great speedlight product that I use personally; The Interfit Strobies XS bracket.

Comparing Speedlight Umbrella Softboxes
If you are like me and do not have the luxury of a dedicated studio space then you likely use speedlights for your artificial lighting needs. One of the best modifiers for any sort of artificial light are softboxes. The problem with standard softboxes is that they can be a pain to setup and not very speedlight friendly. A great alternative to your standard softboxes are these Umbrella Softboxes, another plus is that they are designed to be used with speedlights.
