New low-cost LED light set from Savage

New to the store is a 2-light LED kit from Savage for only $139.00! In the box you’ll find two 250w LED’s with mounts, stands, and umbrellas- all in a small carrying case. A perfect starter light set for portraits or small products.


LEDs provide daylight-balanced, continuous light without getting hot like incandescent photofloods or halogen bulbs. The umbrellas can either be reflective or shoot-thru, but be advised they’re not the brightest bulbs we’ve ever seen. If you can crank your camera’s ISO up into the stratosphere you can use these just fine.


This portrait of Shelley was shot with A Canon T5i & 18-55 kit lens at ISO 1600, 1/125 @ f5.6. One LED was positioned just to the right of camera with a shoot-thru umbrella, while the 2nd LED was behind and to Shelley’s left in a reflective umbrella, spilling onto the background and Shelley’s shoulder.

With such a small, lightweight, cost effective kit and today’s high-ISO cameras you can set up a small headshot studio just about anywhere.


Canon 5Ds bodies are in stock

Your need for 50 megapixels can now be full filled.  The 5Ds is in stock and priced at $3699.99.  DETAIL, that is all that you will be seeing.  Nothing else on the planet, besides larger format cameras will give you what you have been missing in life. Word to the wise, on the way home go pick up a few 4TB drives for your computer.   On average the Large RAW is 100Mb each, that makes your Apple music collection look like small potatoes.

We had an overwhelming response to this idea so we have scheduled a class for Wednesday, July 1st, from 7:00-9:00PM, here at the store. We will cover some of the more popular black and white film types and the necessary chemicals and equipment. I will demonstrate proper technique and workflow from getting the film out of the camera to hanging it up to dry. We will touch on 35mm, 120 medium format, and 4X5 large format film. Cost of the class will be $65.00, 10% discount if prepaid ($58.50). I would advise prepaying to guarantee a seat as this one will fill up. Call the store @ 919-836-2222 or come by to register. If you have further questions you can email Jim White.
