Light reigns at the St. Louis Photo Authority®, and the umbrella is the easiest studio light modifier to use. We've got 'em large and small, white and silver and we can show you how to get the best they have to offer!
We use grids to narrow the angle of light and cast a spot of light where you need it, whether for a background spot or a hair light.
Perfect for generating those large catchlights in products and people's eyes, we have strip boxes and rectangular soft boxes in varying sizes as well as the 8 ft by 16 ft Light Wall, simply not available elsewhere!
