Lightning never strikes twice in the same place. But lighting should. Every time. When taking a picture, lighting is a photographer’s bread and butter. Soft and subtle. Hard and accentuating. And everything in between. All of that depends on how the subject is lit up. Well, don’t leave your photos to chance. Give the HPUSN Softbox Lighting Kit a try and confidently craft shots knowing that what you see is the best you can get.

Customization is the name of the game for the HPUSN softbox. Setup is easy as can be, with the softboxes going up and coming down like umbrellas. They click right in to the stands. Once you’ve screwed in the lightbulbs, simple attach the velcro front diffusion cover and you’re all set! They even come with a carrying case for travel. YouTubers and Instagram influencers alike with delight in the versatility and durability that make these softboxes a must for anyone on a budget who’s serious about capturing the best images possible.

Once aloft in your studio, they can be raised as high as 200 cm and span a range of 210° of motion. The bottom line: if you’ve taken a shining to it, the HPUSN softbox can light it up. European photographers should note that only 110V outlets will do the trick; 220V won’t get you where you want to go. Fortunately, the right bulbs come right in the package the first time around. Comparable in quality to models costing hundreds more, you’ll be impressed at the facility of light coverage they provide. If you’re looking to eliminate shadows in your shots, look no further.

Though the HUPSN softbox is meant primarily to shine in studio settings, being made from water-resistant fibers never hurt anyone. All in all, if you’re looking to get a start in photography or boost your already-promising studio talents, the HPUSN softbox is exactly what you’re looking for.
