I recently purchased a couple LumoPro LP180 Speedlights in order to make my studio lighting more portable (carrying around AlienBees and the associated extension cords can be a pain at times).  I wanted to test them out for lighting consistency, so I setup a simple 3-light layout and started shooting some stock portraits.

I was very pleased with the results.  The lights fired consistently, the lighting levels were fairly even from shot-to-shot, and setup/takedown was so much easier than with my regular studio lights!  What’s more, I now have a portable lighting setup that I can now take on-location anywhere.

Big thanks to my models Samuel and Rebekah for their cooperation and for providing such a wide range of facial expressions!

Here’s a diagram illustrating the setup:
