After I wrote the post on my Lightscoop love I received an e-mail from the people over at Lightscoop who’d been tipped off by one of you. They said thanks for the surprise review and did I want to try the warming version of the product.
I said yes and here I tried it out. These top photos are completely unedited photos taken against a white wall in my basement in the semi darkness using the on-camera flash and only switching the Lightscoop out between shots. At this point the warming one was not my cup of tea I have to say. I did like that my face looked a little bit less pale but I didn’t like what it did to the background.
But check this out. The only editing I did here was to do the exact same white balancing in both shots. I use Photoscape which has a one click white balancing option which I love and here’s where the warming lightscoop really came out great. I love how the background turned white instead of grey and that my whole face lit up. Like I said this is just one click white balancing and no further editing and if I were to use these photos in an other context I’d probably tinker about a little bit more with both of them until I was done. And remember I’m just an amateur so I’m just going with what looks best to me. A pro might have a completely different opinion on how the correct way to go is.
I have yet to try it out on shots of interiors but that’s next on my list. I have to say I’m pleasantly surprised as I didn’t think I’d like the warming one at all.
Thank you so much Lightscoopers for letting me try it!
And did you notice? How could you not, it’s FRIDAY! Have the best weekend!
