Get Better Photos with LightScoop

Good Morning!!!  When we lived in Joplin MO you might remember that I would constantly apologize for my photos on my blog.  My house was just not conducive to good natural light…at all.  It drove me nuts.  Well I am sad to say that my new house in St. Louis…isn’t much better.  My house faces west and it’s long front to back versus left to right.  So I get the sun in the back of my house (1 window in my son’s room) in the morning and the bright evening sun in my front windows in the evening.  Not much good indirect white sunlight. 

So when I heard of Lightscoop I was SUPER, DUPER, UBER excited to try one out.  I am so tired of spending hours editing photos and/or setting up mini portrait studios for a shot or two!

What is LightScoop you ask?  It is not an external, heavy flash to haul around…it’s a simple reflective mirror that redirects your built-in flash’s light to bounce evenly around your object…not just shine a direct laser beam flash right at them!

Here…just let me show you!

With and Without

I did not edit the actual photos one single bit…I did put them next to one another and added the text.  What a difference yes?   Here is my Murphy.

    • Jenn you will LOVE yours! I love mine. I do have the Deluxe model on my wish list. It would be nice when taking verticals to be able to flip the mirror the correct way! But overall this model has worked out AWESOME for me! My photos look like I know what I am doing :)
