Today we had the opportunity to play with some of the lighting kit after a demonstration of how to set them up. We had a brief introduction as to what lights are used for what and the extensions that go with them; soft box etc.
This handout is incredibly useful, it lists the external components and their functions on various Bowens lights. (GM400, Esprit, Esprit 125) It also explains the components and functions of a general light stand.
This is a photo of the light I set up and the soft box I had attached.
