Wehave had many photographersask us for a pro lighting kit with high output lights, a variable powersetting housing, at an affordable price.

Of course, we asked them to reduce theprice, maintain their level of quality, and include a radio trigger. Weadded a full compliment of accessories to make the perfect portraitpackage.

E- Two (2) 20" X 28" Softboxesmade with top quality metal rod framework. These are beautiful lookingas well as extremely functional, with a matte black outer surface and ahighly reflective diffusion interior and detachable soft whitediffusers for the faces. The softbox is extremely versatile incontrolling light, shadow, and hot spots on reflective surfaces -whichis why they are so popular among studio photographers.

F- One (1) Umbrella (33 gold reflecting umbrella). Thisconnects to the smaller strobe for background lighting. Umbrellasprovide a uniform diffused light, but can create unnatural highlightson highly reflective objects. Umbrellas are often used in portraitphotography where the circular highlight they create in the subject'seyes provides a more natural look than the rectangular highlightcreated by a softbox.

G- One (1) Carry case (designedto carry all SP3500 included equipment) With multiple side and frontpockets, you will have plenty of space for storage of film,memorycards, filters and cables. The exterior is made out of aresilient all-weather material to resist bad weather and dust.

H- One (1) Grey Backdrop (10'x20' large fabric backdrop). One 10' x 20' large fabric backdrop (makesan amazing patterned backdrop even in B/W shooting mode). What makesthe "Square Perfect" muslin so special? Square Perfect only suppliesthe highest quality portrait backgrounds.  We believe theunderlying fabric is the most important part of top quality backgroundmuslin. We have searched the world over and partnered with a factorywhich utilizes the best cotton fabric available; it is heavy anddurable. Every Muslin we sell is completely seamless and designed withthe photographer in mind. The seamless and anti-wrinkle characteristicsof our muslin material make this the ultimate muslin available.


  • 100% cotton to absorb thelight and help eliminate reflection. Our Grade A cotton and fineweavingensures a seamless matte background that is free of texture and grain.
  • 4 inch rod pocket at one endallow for easy setup - no more confusion about which side is top.Beware of cheap alternatives that need to be attached with clamps orcounterweights - this product is directly threaded to the cross bar.
  • Dyed with the best qualitydye. Our high quality dyes reduce the color deviation across the fabricsurface - the color will not fade or wear with correct use and storage.
  • Machine washable
  • Crimped along the edges toprevent tears

I- Two (2) Backdrops (6 x9') (onepure black and one pure white) Includes light proof carry bag. WHYMUSLIN? Muslin is by far themost versatile material for portrait backgrounds. It is light enoughnot to be a hassle, yet durable enough to last and get the job doneright! We have found muslin to be by far the most versatile materialfor photography backdrops. It is great for all types of photography:family, children, high school seniors, bridals, models, or evencommercial work. They can be hung on a background stand or on a ceilingmount system. In addition, they can be hung using "A" clamps. WHYCOTTON?  As you know,there are a million choices and just about as many sellers toutingtheir backdrops as the best. One thing to note is the list of possiblefabrics offered and the advantages and disadvantages of each. 100%Cotton is more durable than the 50/50 blend of Cotton and Polyester. Itis softer to the touch and, in my opinion, photographs better than the50/50 blend of cotton and polyester. Cotton is time tested and hasalways been the fabric of choice for professional photographers. It isslightly more expensive, but it offers more durability and performancethan the cheap imposters. We have heard our competitors claims thattheir poly blends are superior to 100% cotton this is simply not true.Ask any professional photographer and he will tell you the same.
