My I suggest there are much simpler, quick to set up and inexpensive flash modifying systems that B&H offers for the wedding and event photographer. Often it is impractial to carry and set up the kind of lighting units shown here - though this is very useful for instance for kiddie sports teams and any other use where many identical background shots must be made in succession.

Speed light modifyers are much more practical for weddings and fast paced events. This new-school equipment is cheap, quick, unobtrusive and fun to use. And nothing big and heavy to carry.

My experience confirms that the Ultimate Light Box from Harbor Digital Design is the king of all the speed light modifyers. By a long shot. Flexible, convertible and so quick you are in and out in a moment, albe to change background and cover large groups with ease.

Check it out and see how your creativity soars.

Not only do I agree with you, Sara, but the cover photo on this vid is far from pprofessional!  They are standing totally disconnected from each other and staring at the camera in a static way. Doesn't make me want to trust advice given here!
