I’m trying to improve my photography. One problem that I often have is that my house is surrounded by trees, and so it’s really hard to get enough natural light to take proper pictures. I often have to use the flash, which then gives it that glare that makes the photo look really fake. When I learned about the Lightscoop, I was really excited to try it out!
Lightscoop® is a smart low-tech device that creates soft, flattering light by redirecting your camera’s pop-up flash to a ceiling or wall.
I tried it out as soon as I received it, and I am happy to say that I can really tell a difference! I liked that the Lightscoop is very easy to hook onto the camera. You just slide it onto the top of the camera where a remote flash would go, and that’s it! No wires or buttons to worry about. No tape or sticky to ruin your camera either, which is great.
After chasing after the kiddos and trying to make them sit still for 10 seconds, I finally got Bookworm to pose for a shot with and without the Lightscoop. Here they are, with the regular flash on the left, and the Lightscoop enhanced on the right: (note that these were taken at night, so they would be evenbrighter during the day)
I did notice a few things when comparing the photos:
- The flash actually had so much glare that my walls look white. They are actually a soft green, which shows up in the Lightscoop photo.
- Flash is not very flattering. Bookworm’s face is too shiny, and the picture as a whole is unnatural looking.
- The Lightscoop actually gives the photo a natural lighting look. It pretty much matched what the actual lighting looked like at the time.
I totally recommend this product, it’s awesome! Check them out on their website, and make sure to connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
