Power Pack Lighting – Setup

Power Pack Lighting – Setup Speedotron

I had a great question from one of our YouTubers about my Power Pack from Speedotron.  Even if you don’t have a Speedotron, it’s still good to watch this video because you may be thinking about purchasing a pack. It’s an investment that you really need to consider. You may be wondering if it’s worth the money and if you really need this type of lighting for macro and closeup work?

I share how to set up a power pack and some of the fun tools you can use to push your photography creations to help you answer these questions.

I do want to remind you that purchasing an expensive light package won’t make the images better just because it’s expensive. You need to learn about all of your equipment and keep pushing the limits of it. I mention Ratios…  If you would like more details on ratios click here or ask and maybe I’ll make a video for you.  😉


Below are the links to the fun equipment and tools for the lighting setup that I shared with you.

Speedotron Black Line 

Speedotron Black Line 202VF

Speedotron Universal Snoot

Rosco Color Effects Filter Kit

Speedotron 7″ Honeycomb Grid Set

6 Right Angle Outlet Surge Protector Power Strip

My Pocket Wizard is older (they don’t make them anymore) this is the new one.  I love my wizard and highly recommend them.

I didn’t want to overwhelm you, but there’s a bunch more fun tools that you can add to this power pack. Start with the basics and once you get that down, add another fun piece to your pack. I know you can get frustrated when learning new tools. I do, but ask questions and keep trying, and all of a sudden everything will click.

Here was my fun for the day…

Do you use packs like Speedotron or Flash or Natural light, and how do you use the light to be creative?   


Cheers to Light!
