Lastolite Accessories for HiLite

Introducing three new accessory sets for use with Lastolite HiLite Background 1.8 x 2.15m: Shapers & Masks, Shaper and Window Voile. Use the HiLite as a softbox. Simple to assemble. Unlimited creative potential.

News Image

Lastolite HiLite Shapers & Masks (item LB8967) includes three opaque black panels that hang on the front of the HiLite background 1.8 x 2.15m (item LB8867, not included).

Alternatively, the photographer can split the light into two strips on either side of the shaper panel. Each position offers a different lighting effect on the subject allowing the photographer to be as creative as they wish. This set also includes three optional masks, which attach to the top and the sides of the HiLite. These ensure no light is spilled from the top or the sides of the HiLite giving the photographer complete control especially when shooting in small spaces. The Lastolite HiLite Shaper (item LB8968) is a single wide opaque black panel that hangs on the front of the HiLite background 1.8 x 2.15m, creating different effects depending on position. The shaper panel can also be used to mask the photographer when shooting with the HiLite directly behind them and with the subject in front. By standing in front of the shaper the photographer can be sure their silhouette does not appear as the catch light in the subjects eyes. Lastolite HiLite Window Voile (item LB8969) effectively turns the HiLite background 1.8 x 2.15m into a huge head to toe window light. All three accessories attaches to the HiLite very easily. They are supplied with a collapsible aluminium pole that simply clips to the top of the HiLite and the fabric then hangs from the pole. (September 2018)
