LightScoop Review (Giveaway Opens 12/4)

how to improve your Christmas pictures

I used to be a professional photographer. No… not really. I used to be an amateur photographer who wanted to be a professional photographer who could occasionally taks some really good pictures but only OUTSIDE. When it came time to take pictures inside, the photographs always looked washed out, flat, and ugly.

Each Christmas, I would try to capture a picture of our tree, shimmering with memories in the corner and casting a delicate glow on the wall behind it. Snap! went the flash and the picture looked like trash.

One day, I was combing the blogosphere and read a review about Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop. I was intrigued and decided that it was worth the small investment if I could bring new life to my priceless pictures. My photography was forever improved.

About Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop

The Lightscoop is an easy device that slip right on to your DSLR camera and redirects the light from the flash to soften the light in your pictures, eliminating the ugly washed-out look. Instead of the light from your flash striking your subject directly, the light is bounced off a wall or ceiling giving your photographs a more natural look.

Lightscoop fits on most digital SLR cameras: Olympus, Pentax, Panasonic Lumix, Nikon, Canon, Fuji FinePix, or Sigma or Sony dSLR.

What I love about Lightscoop

My indoor pictures have never looked this gorgeous.

tips for better photographs

Beautiful blog pictures

As a blogger, it is important that I have pretty pictures because that is what you guys – the readers – want to see. My food pictures need to look appetizing. The pictures of our projects need to be clear and without the distortion of ugly shadows and blurs.

Pretty pictures taken with the Lightscoop are just more PINteresting, and every blogger knows that getting something pinned on Pinterest is going to increase the traffic to your blog.

how to take better pictures of your kids

Quick and easy set-up

I do not need ANY added stress in my life.

As a mother, I want evidence years from now that my children were just as cute as I remember them being, but I do not have time to set up a ton of photography equipment. By the time I have  strobes, umbrellas, and light boxes in the right place, the moment is gone and the children are off somewhere making mayhem.

Affordable solution

Professional photography equipment is expensive, and while the quality of my pictures is very important to me, I have a bazillion other needs for our income. The Lightscoop does not cost a fortune and can fit into any budget.

Buy It

Professor Kobre’s Lightscoop would make an excellent gift or stocking stuffer for the photographer in your family.

Lightscoop is available in standard (what I use) and warming. You can purchase them from the Lightscoop website  individually for $29.95 or together for $55.

    I rarely use a flash because it is so harsh, I have been wanting one of these to help diffuse the flash. Thanks for the giveaway!

  3. says

    I am a picture taking maniac. This sounds awesome and I would love to make my photos even better. I also have a problem with taking photos of myself because my eyes cannot handle the flash and I can never keep my eyes open.

  4. Veronica says

    I love the softer feel of the pictures. It would make the pictures of my baby even cuter (if that were possible!).

  5. says

    I noticed this pic on facebook the other day, of your little man with Santa and thought to myself that you must’ve gotten a new camera! Awesome product!!!!!

    I take so many pictures of my kids and the flash ruins so many of them! The times I’ve tried to not use the flash, the kids move so fast, the pictures are blurry. I would love to win this!!

    I would love to be able to take better pictures of our family. We have a nice camera but they still just don’t always turn out like I want them to. Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  12. Connie says

    My husband is the photographer of the family. This would definitely help him to achieve the best pictures possible. What a blessing this would be for me to be able to give this to him for Christmas.

  13. Julie says

    My children don’t know what I look like without a camera in front of my face.
    I, too, am an amateur who has dreamed of being a professional.
    I used to have a similar flash tool with my 35mm camera, but have been at a loss since I switched to my DSLR. I would LOVE to have this!

  14. Carole Ann Spear says

    I got one of these for my niece, Amanda for Christmas. It came today, and after reading about it and looking it over even more closely than I did the other day I would love one of these for myself. It really makes a big difference in the photos. Seeing this post makes me think I’ve gotten a sign…

  15. Rebecca says

    A flash seems to give me (&my sons) red eyes too often…& also washes out my already pale skin. Maybe this would make more of my pictures look good?!
