You know what they say: when it comes to creating stunning photographs, lighting is everything. But even the best lighting setup can benefit from the use of lighting accessories for photography. At PROtog, we’ve long understood the importance of high-quality lighting accessories. These lighting accessories are designed to help shape and soften light, control the direction and intensity of light, and supply support for your studio photography lights and cameras. That is why we’ve created such a wonderful range of photography lighting accessories. From studio photography lights to folding, free standing, and portable green screens, whatever lighting accessories you need, we guarantee we’ll have them.
One essential category of lighting accessories for photography is light modifiers. These tools are used to change the quality of light produced by your studio lights or speedlights. For instance, rectangle and octagon softboxes can help create soft, even lighting that flatters your subject's features. Scrims can be used to diffuse sunlight and create a soft, diffused light that works well for outdoor portraits. Meanwhile, other lighting accessories such as beauty dishes, snoots, grids, and Fresnel lenses can be used to create focused, directional lighting that accentuates certain features and minimizes others.
Another type of lighting accessory is the folding reflector. These portable reflectors can be used to bounce light onto your subject, creating a more even and flattering light. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes and can be used both in the studio and outdoors.
Green screens are another popular type of lighting accessory. These screens are used in video and photo shoots to create a background that can be replaced in post-production. A folding green screen or portable green screen can be used for location shoots or smaller studios. For larger studios, a free-standing green screen can be used to create a larger backdrop for your shoot.
Support accessories are also essential for any photography lighting. Light stands and C-stands are used to hold your studio photography lights in place. Boom stands can be used to position your lights above your subject, while background stands can be used to support muslin backdrops, paper rolls, or vinyl backgrounds. High view stands can be used for high perspective photography, while offset arms can be used to place a second light off to the side.
