LumiQuest is now offering three new lighting kits that include the existing LumiQuest flash accessories, like Softbox III, Snoot XTR, FXtra, and more. The goal of each kit is to get you quickly started depending on the type of flash photography you do. If you typically shoot in a fast-paced environments like weddings and other events, you are likely in the need of a good on-camera diffuser with some gels for color correction. If you mainly do portraits, an off-camera softbox with a snoot can be you good starting point. So, if you are not really sure what set of accessories to get for your most common tasks, getting something like a LumiQuest Kit can save you some research time and some money (up to 17%).

May 1, 2012, New Braunfels, TX, USA: LumiQuest is introducing the following three Kits for specific photographic applications:
Strobist® Kit: The Strobist® Kit offers the "go to" flash modifiers of David Hobby (www.strobist.com). Included in this Kit are the LumiQuest SoftBox III, FXtra and two UltraStraps.
Wedding/Event Kit: The LumiQuest Quik Bounce, FXtra and UltraStrap are the perfect trio for the fast moving photographers covering weddings and events.
Location/Portrait Kit: Products included in this Kit offer the photographer many options for shooting portrait type work on location. The Kit includes the SoftBox III, Snoot XTR, FXtra and two UltraStraps. Compact enough to take on location, equally at home in your studio.
In commenting on "Why Kits for specific applications," Quest C. Couch, Co-Founder and CEO of LumiQuest states, "During our 25 years we have had thousands of conversations with photographers and coupled with our experiences, what emerged were three main categories of photographers… those who follow David Hobby’s shooting style, the fast-paced wedding and event folks and lastly, photographers who do lots of location portrait work." The components of these kits were carefully considered and selected for specific situations and objectives.
"In addition, during these challenging economic times we wanted to offer value-added Kits," added Quest. All of the Kits offered are at a savings over purchasing the individual products. Also, included with each Kit is a free storage pouch to neatly and conveniently store the products.
The Strobist® Kit is an $86.00 value and has a MSRP of $76.95. The Wedding / Event Kit has a value of $77.00 with MSRP at $68.95. Our Location / Portrait Kit is valued at $120.00 with a MSRP of $99.95.
"You certainly don't have to use everything in a Kit every time, and you will likely add items depending on your personal style. But, the Kits are a great place to start" states Quest.
