    Oh the things I would create if I ever won such magnificent light shaping tools! I would climb to the top of a mountain, capture the bearded men fishing during sunrise, photograph food for the farmers and handmade products for local companies, and my favorite I would create more portraits to share my Humans of the High Country stories while bringing the studio to people right where they are at! Oh my lanta! What a dream! The speed and power of the B2 light alone is astonishing and this kit is tremendous! I got to rent profoto lighting as a minor while in school studio class and these lights are amazing!! For a young gal who is dedicating her life to photography this would be beyond a dream to come true! With this sort of kit comes infinite possibilities and the freedom to take the light anywhere! Now that is a powerful gift to receive and I’ve gotta dream big and encourage others to dream big too if becoming a photographer is your dream! Never give up! So, thank you for providing such a big gift for someone to win! What a blessing it will be for the winner! good luck everybody! Attached a pic I made while using only one profoto light with an octabox from school! These are the best lights in the world y’all! :) (Just wanted to share a pic when I saw the little camera eyecon-) and that’s my Great Grandma with the gun! hahahahaha. #dreamsDOcomeTRUE #neverGIVEup #followYOURpassions #goodnight828
