Product Description

Product Description

The PhotoSEL PPC124 Tabletop Product Photography Kit is an ideal solution for tabletop, small object and e-commerce applications. It includes a PhotoSEL LS11E22 Studio Lighting Kit and a PhotoSEL LT144 60cm Light Tent.

If you have been trying to shoot pictures with an accurate colour representation of the items you are photographing, it is very likely that you have been relying on special filters and/or software editing to improve the results. With the PhotoSEL LS11E22 Lighting Kit, this may well be a thing of the past. Rather than providing inferior quality 6400K 50-80 CRI light bulbs, this kit includes two high quality 5500K 90+ CRI fluorescent light bulbs. Set-up is easy: plug the lights in, place them on the table, and turn them on. The result is 5500K light output that's ideal for taking digital shots by collectors, arts and crafts hobbyists, sellers, archivists, and desktop publishers. The lighting kit can also be used for DV talking head shots, digital still portraits, and webcam desktop video conferencing.

Each LS11E22 lighting kit comes supplied with two 26W 5500K 90+ CRI 1300lm daylight fluorescent light bulbs. Also included are two 15.6cm reflectors, two power cables with in-line switch and two 26-40cm light stands.

Using direct lighting for product photography can cause harsh dark shadowing and unpleasant reflections particularly on shiny objects. The 100% top quality velvet fabric of the PhotoSEL Light Tent gently diffuses the light from your light source, evenly illuminating your object inside and eliminating any unwanted shadows. The light tent can be lit from the sides, back, top and, with a glass, or suitable light table, the bottom. Its detachable front door cover incorporating a slit for your camera lens is particularly useful when photographing highly reflective objects such as glassware.

Four high quality background cloths, one black, one white, one blue and one red, are also included in the package. These can be positioned inside the light tent using velcro fasteners and will cover the back and floor of the light tent. Thanks to its stainless steel spring frame the PhotoSEL Light Tent can be popped-up in a matter of seconds, and once you're done simply fold it flat and store it in the pouch provided or take it with you to your next photo-shoot location.

Arrived really quickly, very well packed, and really simple to set up and take down.

The lights and the light tent produce very even light on and around the product, I test each lighting set up first with a light meter - perfect for photographing shiny/reflective materials/products as you avoid reflections of your studio set up or even yourself!

I've used this for a specific project for a magazine which has required long days over a period of more than a week. The lights manage heat extremely well, they barely get hot with continued use. Indeed, the bulbs are cool enough to be hand removed within seconds of being switched off. Being continuous lighting and working with challenging reflections has allowed me to see the reflections and place flags and diffusors wherever I need them to get the best possible shot before taking. This a huge advantage in workflow and time spent over using studio strobes, which are often over powered for the purpose.

There is a slight fall off from the 5400k, this can drop down to 4,500k or slightly less but nothing that cannot easily be corrected in post production, or whilst shooting if shooting tethered, as I do. Colour balance is pretty good too and requires only a slight tweek, I always use a colour balancing card.

Light stands are well made, the whole kit is well made, and robust. I have been impressed by the images I've captured better still, the magazine are impressed and want even more than we had first agreed, so definitely a win for me! Proof is in the pudding, as they say.

This set up has worked for me so I would highly recommend the PhotoSEL kit.

I can find no fault with this item, except maybe I'll never get the tent back in it's bag again! Everything is well made and the light produced is superb - I wouldn't be without it.

Lights are well made, strong and sturdy, but not bright enough or tall enough. The tent comes packed in a very small flat circular bag, and it hit me in the face as I unzipped the bag, leaping out like a freshly released airbag, except with a metal frame. The tent is very creased, although I suppose this would get better if it was left assembled all the time. Or you could, God forbid - iron it every time.

The backdrops would need ironing too. I didn't think they were of very good quality. The description of 'velvet' is pushing it a bit - they are thin and crackly, synthetic backed with a slight nap on one side which is non reflective, but I wouldn't personally describe this as velvet.

Packing the tent back into the bag was an absolue nightmare - funny if it hadn't been so annoying. There were no instructions. Nothing worked - it was like wrestling a live and slippery animal. As soon as I got one side tucked in, the other side popped out, and as for getting it folded down small enough to get back into the bag... I was on the point of returning it fully assembled and in a bigger box. I asked the community for help and was directed to an instructional video on Youtube - so I obviously wasn't the only one having trouble.

Even then it took a while to master, though the video made it look easy. I was afraid to use too much force as I was afraid of breaking the metal, but in the end I had to get tough with it and use brute force. I don't think I got it quite right, but at least the darn thing was back in the bag. The guy on the video says it's a fantastic piece of kit - I beg to differ.

I sent it back - who needs all that hassle each time unless you have the space to leave it set up permanently - but mostly because I was actually getting better results without it. Warning to anyone else - hold the bag at arm's length when opening unless you want a whack on the nose. The three stars are for the lights.

The tent is the usual type and suffers that the coloured background cloths are a bit creased (I solved this by buying some A2 size art card in pastel colours and cutting them to fit.)
The lamps are excellent and give good daylight illumination. The packaging is very robust and everything arrived in perfect state. Delivery was extremely prompt and the whole kit is well with buying.

I read the other reviews and thought, ok, let's give it a go as I've been searching for ages for a kit like this. So,once the item arrived in good time I tore my way through the packaging gently of course, but was eager to see if this was going to be what I was expecting. I was so excited to set it all up, ready to start taking photos of our jewellery for our e-commerce website and I could not believe how fabulous the pics were. I have some really bling jewellery and once the lights had been altered correctly, I couldn't believe how even the shadows dispersed from the products and sometimes, I only needed one light to get the picture. The tripod is a little stiff when pulling out the feet, but I may have to loosen the screws or maybe over time of use, they will loosen up a bit.

I love the background colours, I haven't yet tackled to put the pod back into its bag as I'm still using it. If I can put a reflector shield away, I'm sure I can put this away too.

A must buy, even my twin sister was blown away by the images and I used my android S3 to take them...and she was laughing as I was cheering after taking each pic. It was actually a pressie from my husband, he just paid for it, lol. I was racking my head as to what I needed and it was a very good choice indeed!

Thank you, xx
