The Lastolite HiLite backgrounds range allows the photographer to undertake ‘High Key’ photography on location and in restrictive spaces. The white background itself can be rear-lighted so there is no longer a need to use a background light behind the subject and because the background itself can be illuminated, the subject can stand right in front of it without casting a shadow. The HiLite backgrounds also work as a large rear softbox, illuminating the subject, meaning you can use just one other flash head to light the subject from the front. The Lastolite HiLite background is collapsible so can be easily stored and transported. This is the 5' x 7' version. More
4 Nov 2010 - Since its introduction some years ago, the Lastolite HiLite background has been increasingly popular with portrait photographers. Sadly, I still get a lot of correspondence about the HiLite background from photographers who struggle to achieve the look that they expected. That’s why I’m putting pen to paper, not in the form of a review as such, but just to reassure you that using the HiLite need not be a struggle. How to get the most out of your HiLite...

Should have got one a long time ago.
I use it for video interviews at the client location, perfect for when you have no idea what kind of environment you are going to find. So, best take your own.As it is free standing no need for extra stands, backdrops and props.I generally use a daylight coolight in side and two outside.Initially the box will appear creased but once you have lit it from inside and set up the outside lights creases soon fade.If you have never experienced a 'pop up ' system take care, this really does POP!Practice the folding before your first use with a client, no chance of just leaving it part done because you are in a hurry.I also use it for product shots of large objects, light it internally and this produces a pure white background allowing easy post work in Photoshop.

About Me Semi-pro Photographer
Great product, simple to use and very professional looking results - I normally work with, bigger, heavier permenant kit but the background is fantastic to use for a mobile photographer. Very easy to set up, did have difficulty at first putting the product away as the steel did bend against it's design and then wouldn't pop back up into it's usual shape. Eventually, (15 minutes later) it did pop back into place and haven't experienced the problem again since.For anyone uncertain, the product videos really helped me with my decision.
I thought long and hard before making this purchase but WOW I am glad that I did.It makes high-key an absolute sinch, is so simple to use and will give great results whatever your skill level.A little pricey for what it is but it does give superb results.

Easy and very effective
from South East England
It took me a while to build up the courage to buy this i wanted to see it in the 'flesh' but couldn't i watched a few you tube videos of it and realised it would be worth it. So i took the plunge baught it and well it is the best thing i did, it really is good, it is easy to install and you can put it up almost anywhere the photo quality you achive with it is studio standard and its a small amount of equipment to move around so you dont turn up to a clients house with 10 bags! The instrutions that came with it are very very good and ment that when you have opened it you can get it back down with ease. i will be doing a wedding shoot with it in about a month and this will be used to gather a bit more income as i am only a rookie! trust me though this is worth the money the results are breath taking.
