This guide will show you how a tablet can super charge your shots with creative backdrops, custom light shapes, and pop art colors.

Lighten Up! (Your Photos)
With The Pocket Spotlight

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We have seen the light! …and now we carry it around with us to light our photos.

It’s called The Pocket Spotlight, and it’s a portable panel of LEDs perfect for adding diffused light to dark situations.

Since it’s a constant light (and not some fleeting flash) you can take your time directing the light in just the right angle and setting the perfect exposure.

It comes with a headphone jack mount and a hot shoe mount, and if you’re not into mounting, you can just hold it in your hot little hand.
