Product Description

The Lastolite HiLite Background is a unique way to achieve hi key photographs. This inventive system, allows the photographer to minimize lighting scenarios while achieving spectacular results.
 
The HiLite Background is different in that it permits you to place your strobe head Iinside the background completely directing the light to the background and filling it with white light. No more worrying about 'spill' or having to test to see if the background light is positioned correctly.
Furthermore, because the background is actually illuminated it means the subject can stand virtually right in front of it without casting a shadow.
 
Features:
  • Can be suspended on a Lastolite 1108 background support system
  • Can even be used as a very large softbox
  • Free standing
Comprises of:
  • HiLite Background
  • 4xSupport Rods
Available in four sizes

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, but a bit pricey. 13 Jun 2010
This is an excellent piece of kit, well made, easy to put up (though difficult to fold down at first) and is quite mobile for a background compared to the 'roll away' ones. However, you pay a premium price for this convenience, but you do get better results from this in comparison to the other backgrounds. OK, you can shine some light onto the paper ones but the Hi-Lite is brighter with only one light source, two is even better. Shop around also, I got mine WITH the Lastolite Vinyl Train delivered for less money than Amazon's price for just the Hi-Lite on it's own.

5.0 out of 5 stars HiLite for high key 17 Feb 2013
This is one basic thing in studio. You can use it as background in high key pictures or as light source for very soft light.

Verified Purchase
I first use a friends over a year ago and he has been kind enough to let me use it on a number of occasions - now I have bought my own and it didn't disappoint. easy to assemble and disassemble (although there is a great YouTube video on how to fold it down which was invaluable and makes the task simple - a must watch) I bought this with a triple head Lumin8 400 flash heads and Phottix trigger and 3 x receivers - result a very happy photographer and very happy families I've been shooting portraits for.
