The D-Lite 4 for a fun fashion shoot in Barcelona !

Photographer Rodrigo Diaz Wichmann used the D-Lite RX 4/4 during a fun fashion shoot in Barcelona. By playing with various lighting set ups and constantly moving the Portalite Softbox around the model, Rodrigo obtained the perfect lighting and a great end-result.

The D-Lite RX was tried out by Victor Gonzales, a photography student at Idep Barcelona

Fast assembly, great lighting and easy triggering is what Victor noticed when using this set. And this ease of use can also be seen in the end-result itself. With great lighting, Victor took his time to create the perfect photograph!
