Manfrotto HiLite Overview

The white Manfrotto HiLite Illuminated Background is a unique way to achieve high key photographs. This inventive system allows the photographer to minimize lighting scenarios while achieving spectacular results.

The HiLite Background is different in that it permits you to place your strobe head INSIDE the background, completely directing the light to the background and filling it with white light. No more worrying about 'spill' or having to test to see if the background light is positioned correctly since the background will be evenly lit. Furthermore, because the background is actually illuminated it means the subject can stand virtually right in front of it without casting a shadow.

This system also works as a rear softbox and can illuminate your subject as well. This means you can simply use use one other light in the front and you're ready to shoot.

Illuminates background evenly eliminating the need for a separate rear light
Free standing
Can be suspended on a Lastolite 1108 background support system
An optional 'wipe clean' vinyl train is also available
Can even be used as a very large softbox
Available in four sizes

What would happen if you used colored gels on the speedlites inside the hilite? Anyone have time to try this out?
Asked by: Jill
It will change the color of the backdrop. Just make sure that you distance your subject far from backdrop so that no light from subject hits backdrop. It use it all the time, it's a game changer for me.

Are a couple of Godox AD200's sufficient for lighting the inside of these? What head should I use?
Asked by: John
You will want enough power to be 2 stops brighter than the light on your subject when using the Manfrotto HiLite Illuminated White Background (6 x 7') BH #MAHL67. You would want to use the barebulb of the AD200.

**Why** can't a continuous LED light (or 2, one on each side) be used with the Lastolite background? Aren't these designed for video use, also??
Asked by: Rod
You could use a pair of higher powered COB LED like these SL200w https://bhpho.to/2N9fC6a. You will need to balance the power levels to your key light, you will want the lights in the background to be about 2 stops brighter than your key light.
