My CowBoyStudio Lighting Kit


Recommended Posts

A posting moved over from my blog in HSS blogs from December 2014




I have not been keeping up with what I've been up to lately.


Nearly a month ago I did an unboxing of my CowboyStudio Lighting Kit 

 that I planned to use when making videos in the future. I had been looking for some sort of "light defuser" and had posted questions in the forums. http://homeserversho...users/?p=91130

I got the idea for CowboyStudio from several conversations between @jcollison and @HomeServerShow on their Podcasts and @jcollison’s blog. The kit has three Day-Light-CFL bulbs, three stands, two Umbrellas and a carrying case.

I'm really liking my new lighting and think it does improve my video lighting and I've found it useful when doing close-in work where the more lighting the better! Thanks to Dave & Jim for this great idea!

Yup, that's the set I use. I think I sent one to Jim back in the day when he sat in the dark!  Mine are still running well. No complaints.  Thanks for writing it up John.

I picked up a lighting kit in January (Photography Photo Portrait Studio 600W Day Light Umbrella Continuous Lighting Kit by LimoStudio) and I've been happy with it so far.


I just have to be careful with the bulbs that I use. The fixtures are only rated for 45w.
