Weekly Giveaway – Tool for the Strobist

A couple of weeks ago, we showed you some items from David Honl’s line of light shapers, distributed by expoimaging.
Basically for those using speedlights, which is basically ALL of us at some point, you really want to use the light in a better way perhaps, than just opening up the floodgates.
Sure, you can just aim it directly at your subject, naked to the world, harsh and unforgiving, but why not shape it a little? Be kind to your subject, and harness that millisecond burst of light.
This full system of light modifiers were designed by a photographer David Honl, who first made them out of need.
After some fellow photogs asked him to make them up a set, he did. Soon he realized that maybe a lot of other shooters could use these tools.

And they can.

So this week, we’re offering a chance to get into the system with a starter set, that could be all you’ll need.
First off is a well made “speed strap”, which is basically a velcro strap that allows you to attach all of the system parts to your speedlight.

Then we have a flat piece which can be used as a snoot, directing a more focused light on the subject, or it can be fanned out like a reflector to broaden your light source and soften the blow.
Either way, you’ll dig the compactness of it all.
Lays flat, plays big. (please note there are only 2 items in this weeks giveaway: photo shows more of the full line of product. Contact you local photodealer for more info and/or purchase details.)

All of the info on getting this set-up for free, will be in the weekly NEWSLETTER. (Do we have to say “flashes not included”? OK, fine. We will)

And starting this week, we’ll try some giveaways, just for the folks following us on Twitter. We’ll send out special codes for free photographic items on a twitter message, and see how that works out for everyone.
Checking it out and sussing the value of it all.

Here’s how to enter to win this weeks absolutely free giveaway:
1. Hit reply to the NEWSLETTER (yep, the one
that came in your email inbox)
2. Put the special word included in that email into the subject line of
the email.
3. Delete body of email (saving server space)
4. Add a shipping address
5. Hit Send

That’s it. That’s all you have to do. Pretty easy actually.
Good Luck!
