The Spiderlite TD3 Backlight Kit from Westcott is an ideal way to create a sense of depth by visually separating your subject from the background. The kit includes a Spiderlite TD3 lamp head with three 30W daylight fluorescent lamps, a Cap and Half-Dome reflector and a 3' backlight stand. The reflector acts as a kind of scoop that directs the light forward. Use it with the white dome for a soft even look or without it for a crisp quality of light. Just hide the stand behind your subject and direct it at the background. Close up to the background it has a spot effect. Pulling it further away lights the background more evenly.
The Spiderlite TD3 features all-metal construction, a grip handle, removable 15' power cord, AC/DC power options and a built-in speedring that accepts rods from a Westcott 12x16" softbox. Larger softboxes can be mounted to the light using an optional adapter. Switches at the back of the head allow you to vary the light intensity by using 1, 2 or 3 lamps.
