Mother’s Day Selfies – With Your DSLR and Lightscoop

Before there were smart phones, there were selfies. We just called them self portraits back then. Whether we put our cameras on tripods, or we simply stretched out our arms and turned the camera around, selfies have been around as long as…well? Mothers and cameras! Smart phone selfies are just fine for outdoors. But indoors? No thank you. The best …

Beauty is Everywhere with Mary Lauren Rodabaugh and Her Lightscoop Deluxe

A hospital room may not seem like the most likely environment for beautiful Lightscoop images. But Mary Lauren Rodabaugh sees beauty everywhere. Such was the case when her little sister Aubry was hospitalized with seizures last fall. Mary Lauren captured these images and shared them with us on our Facebook page. We loved them so much and wanted to know …

Happy New Year!

Here’s a great example of an indoor flash group photo, shot by our friend Darren W. Brown – nice one! Darren used a D300 and his trusty Lightscoop to eliminate those harsh shadows, shiny faces and deer-in-headlights look so common with indoor flash photography. The result: An absolutely perfect family photo where everyone looks great, including the four-legged family member! …

Is your family so focused on the food that you forget to even suggest a group photo until everyone’s mouths are full? These are traditionally (ahem) crummy shots. But there a few tricks that can actually make the “family table shot” scrapbook-worthy. …

Expect the Unexpected

If your family is like most, some of the best photos come from those candid moments between “posed” shots. Instead of waiting for everyone to smile on cue or look like magazine models, keep on snapping! For the “family photojournalist,” real life always delivers the winning images. Don’t forget: Without a flash indoors, moving subjects may come out blurry in …

Natural Light Indoors?

So you’re a natural-light photographer? Good for you, but– let’s face it– life doesn’t always happen in perfect light. Rather than losing meaningful moments as they unfold in typically imperfect indoor light, use a Lightscoop to redirect your camera’s built-in flash. This way, you can imitate natural light in most home settings, even in windowless rooms lit by dim bulbs! Your Lightscoop …

Group Hug

When you’ve got everything set up for a photo shoot with the little one, why not ask your partner to join the fun for quick informal portrait? Or, better yet, set your camera’s self-timer and jump into the photo yourself. You won’t have to worry about blur from movement if you use your built-in flash and the Lightscoop. The beauty …
