In this Impact Three-Light Mini-Boom Kit – Quick Review I will go over the lighting kit and show you how I set it up for my studio work and for a quick portrait session with Layla.
These lights are extremely affordable, so the build quality is not like those units that cost hundreds of dollars a piece, but for the money, the results are excellent in my opinion! The kit has all you need to get the job done in a variety of situations.
I use it for all my review work and product filming, plus lab photos and testing. I have also used these lights for food photography and portrait sessions on occasion when the constant lights are preferred. If you would like to have a chance at winning this lighting kit all you need to do is comment below with what you plan on using it for. Also, consider purchasing something from BHPhoto since they were kind enough to give me the kit to give away to you and that will give you two chances to win!!

Impact Three-Light Mini-Boom Kit – Quick Review & Tutorial Video
Here is the first image when we were just warming up… Not that great and lighting need to be moved around a bit.
Be sure to click on the photos for a higher resolution more crisp version!!
Starting to get a little better and the lights dialed in a bit. You really need to look at where the highlights and shadows fall. You don’t want any “Hot Spots” in particular and adding some angle and head tilt makes for a way more interesting image.
Now I got the lighting where I want, so I just needed a genuine smile and a little head tilt/ angle.
For these photos I only used a single light source from the right hand side of the food. I also had a 48″ white reflector on the left side to help fill in the shadows a little bit. Another light would have been to much fill. Sometimes less is more, and this is the case here in my opinion.
That is about it for this article, but if you are interested in winning this light set-up, please comment below and tell me what you plan on using the lights for!
