Join Jason Friedman as he shows you how to set-up a multi-light studio portrait session safely and quickly using Kupo’s innovative, precision crafted grip equipment. In this webinar you will learn how grip equipment is used to rig a one, two and three light setup, four background lights and a seamless background to achieve two different types of portrait lighting. Afterwards it will be clear how grip equipment can benefit you as a still photographer, and as you transition into a moving image maker or a combination of the two as the portrait lighting styles and the equipment used to achieve them are equally applicable to both disciplines.

Grip equipment consists of light stands and specialized hardware that allows you to mount cameras, lighting equipment and accessories virtually anywhere. When it comes to rigging cameras and lighting, the same tools are used by both photographers and filmmakers alike. Of course each industry has specialized tools for their craft such as strobes for still photography and dollies for smooth camera movements in cinematography, but the huge variety of grip gear that filmmakers have been using for decades such as clamps, adapters, stands, light control, booms and arms are found in professional photography studios worldwide.

Especially now, with the evolution of the DSLR and its amazing video capabilities, investing in grip equipment is an obvious choice for any imaging professional.
