My photography skills have come a long way since owning my first film camera. I’ve since upgraded to many point and shoot cameras and my pride and joy, a Nikon DSLR. When I first got my Nikon I shot in automatic. Two years later I took the plunge and decided it was time to learn what this amazing machine could do. It’s been over a year of understanding how my camera works, and my shots get more and more amazing each time.
I invested in a 50mm lens last summer, and this year I was in the market for some kind of flash. I generally do not use the flash on my camera, but sometimes it is necessary. The straight on lens that is build into the camera is too bright, often leaving me with shiner faces or a light reflection. This circle of light on the photos takes away from the beauty and natural look of the photo. I decided to get an external flash that I could rotate to reflect the light off of something else, but the learning curve on that is just too much for me to take on right now. When a friend told me about Lightscoop, I knew it was something I had to at least try out.
I was impressed with how simple the Lightscoop deluxe is, and his easy it is to install into the camera. The purpose of the light scoop is to deflect light away from your object and onto the ceiling, still providing enough light for the photo but without bright spots. The Lightscoop basically lives on my camera these days, ensuring the best shots I can take of my two daughters any time they do something cute! My photo quality had improved in low light since using light scoop. Stay tuned for photos with and without Lightscoop, but in the mean time be sure to check out Lightscoop products for the camera savvy person on your list this holiday!
