So in order to carry out my shoot I had to hire own a Travel light kit from the Media Loan Shop at University. Kit I used :
- Bowens 500w Mono Light
- 120° Wide-Angle Reflector
- Lamp Stand
- Convertible Umbrella
- Camera Sync Cable
- Power lead
- Canon 5D mkII
- Canon 580 EXII Speedlite
- 4x AA Batteries
