Lastolite HiLite Illuminated Overview

The Lastolite HiLite Illuminated White Background is a unique way to achieve hi 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

I bought one of these softbox/illuminated backgrounds a few years ago. Absolutely amazing but as one of the other reviewers mentioned, after a few short month the white translucent front starts to turn a yellowish/red and become a pain for post edit. Is there anything I can clean the front translucent front material with to get it back to white??

**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.

You would place a light source into the slots on both sides which then illuminates the background.

question

Any suggestions on how many stops should I meter the Lastolite hilite relative to the main? YouTube suggest 2 stops more but it is not working for me.
Asked by: Mohamed
It really depends on the distance between your subject and the background. I often do 2 stops when subject is 7 to 10 feet in front or more, but if my subject is closer, I will try to lower the wrap around effect by lowering the light to 1 stop more than the key, or less. I know some people are not even trying to get pure white because of this and will settle with a very light grey, then make it white is post production.
