I was recently asked to review a light system from the theLAshop. The LAshop sells tons of fun stuff from furniture to tattoo equipment, photography equipment and stuff to make even the best party BETTER (cotton candy machines, popcorn machines, etc). A few months ago I reviewed a backdrop stand for this company and really liked their product, so when I was approached again to review a continuous light system, I jumped at the chance.
My light system came promptly, unfortunately I have trouble being prompt about posting my reviews and it's taken a while to find an opportunity to pull the light system out and set it up, even though it is a super easy and quick set up (that's what happens when you lead a busy life and after seven years living in the same place your photography business is suddenly and FINALLY experiencing growth).
This system is pretty awesome. It's lightweight and comes in a manageable and convenient carrying case. There aren't any complicated pieces: 2 white umbrellas, 2 bulbs, 2 bulb attachments with power switches, cord and plug (all in one, no detaching) and 2 light stands.
The light stands can be as compact as you need them to be. My house is pretty small and doesn't have any super large spaces for setting up a "studio" but I was able to make a quick "studio" in my tiny (6ft x 6ft) hallway using a backdrop and these two lights. You can also extend the light stands to approximately 8 feet and they are stored at about 2.5 feet in length.
