Light Blaster: 35 Times Less Expensive Alternative to Broncolor Optical Spot

Using¬†digital backgrounds in photography is a great technique which¬†opens unlimited possibilities for a photographer. However,¬†not everything can be done in Photoshop (should I say “not easily can be done”?), and there are interesting lighting techniques which can be used to get amazing¬†effects¬†right from the camera, before any post-production.

Below is an example of such image. The only thing we did is adjusted colors in camera RAW converter. The whole thing was done right in the camera with only one light ($60 speedlite) and $100 optical attachment to it.. well, and the lens.

  1. Hi Alex ,

    Can you tell to me which are metal screens you are using with this Light Blaster ?? . I think if use the normal screens at maximum flash powers , maybe it does not work , because to much bright cancels the drawing . I have this light blaster since a year ago but….never see this metal screens that you are using in this video. I ll be apreciated if do you can write the link where can i buy the same.

    Best regards and apreciated.

  2. Thank you Alex for this amazing article! I think you might add a color gel in the cassette, and you’ll get a colorful result without a post work in PS.

  3. Super cool Alex! That will be my next wish list item. Thanks. Also I will like to ask you, what camera are you using to record your tutorials? They look very nice and sharp.

    • Anthony,
      Thank you. We are using an old Sony HDR SR11 camcorder. It is a good one, but not as good (in terms of video quality) as what you’ll get from Any DSLR HD video..
      Unlike DSLR, it does not overheat and we can stream video 24/7 from it :-)
