Even in the day time, the sun is rarely out so the photos I do take seem to look dull. Normal lights make the picture appear yellow and not true to colour.
In the summer months I was able to take lovely bright photos with the help of the sunshine!! Whilst the sun still makes a occasional appearance, lets face it... it's also blooming freezing out there. Don't really fancy going out in the cold plus shivering makes my camera shake!! Brrr!
These soft-boxes were sat in my Amazon 'Wish list' for ages before one day I just thought, "I love blogging, I'm enjoying it and I want my photos to reflect my love of blogging and be the best I can do" (If that makes sense?)
I can't imagine being without, as it allows me to take bright and clear photos at any-time of the day or night.
The lamp uses a special 135w bulb which emits the equivalent of daylight.
When I have finished they fold up again very neatly to store away behind the couch!!
Gives you the freedom to blog whenever the mood strikes.
