While traveling long distance it can be hard to drag a whole bunch of large expensive equipment with you. So is it possible to shoot high quality, well lit images with a lightweight, bare minimum kit? In my opinion, I believe it is.
I would be taking a trip to America with my fiancé, Clare (who is also a photographer), with planned shoots in both New York and Las Vegas. Limited weight allowance on flights was clearly going to make it difficult to bring a lot of kit along with our luggage for 3 weeks. We knew that we would likely be shooting in bright sunny conditions and would want to have some kind of creative lighting control over the image.
