About

 

 

 

Isolite works just like any other lighting accessory, you simply attach it to your strobe or speedlights and start shooting.

These revolutionary modifiers let you change the light AFTER the image has been captured.

It allows you to turn real lights on and off inside the picture.

This is not software. It's hardware. Isolite is not an app!

In fact, no other tool, app, smartphone, or Portrait Mode can do what Isolite Light Modifiers can do.

 

 

The animations above are not simulations or software tricks, but real examples of photos made with the Isolite light modifier prototypes. 

• Isolite works just like any other lighting accessory, you simply attach it to your strobe or speedlights and start shooting. 

•Turn real lights on and off after the capture has been made. 

• Push, Pull, Paint light after the capture has been made. Hard and soft light in one capture. 

• Adjust the exposure and ratio of each light source after the capture has been made. With selective masking of each light source, difficult or impossible lighting control can be done with ease.

 • Light can be animated after one still capture turning an image capture into full motion video. Using our proprietary tools, online images can be brought to life with light

Once the RAW images are captured they pass through the Isolite converter and a new RAW file (DNG) is generated  after lighting has been adjusted. This can be done multiple times, and you would have several RAW files, of the same shot, each with different lighting. You may then process each with your favorite RAW processor.  

Below is an example of how the conversion tool will work. 

 

Isolite uses precision optical filters to separate the light into two discreet wavelengths so each lighting channel may be easily distinguished by your camera's sensor.

Isolite has been design to work with the most popular sizes of current Speedlights as well as most legacy Speedlights. Our studio accessories have been designed to fit the latest Profoto and Tri (Bowens) Mount Strobes, but we also have adapters to fit Elinchrom and will build more adapters if there is demand. Let us know what you are using!

Risks and challenges

Isolite technology is real, and it works!

It is currently in the hands of our alpha testers and a few select photographers.

But we need your support to get an affordable and easy to use product into your hands!.

We also want Isolite to be as foolproof and easy to use as possible. This requires rigorous product testing with a wide range of equipment and environments.

The largest piece of the puzzle that is currently missing, is the software to process the images. While most of the work is done by the Isolite hardware, the fun part comes when you get to play with the light in post. This is currently being done with unfun command line scripts, so it needs to be packaged up into a great user experience.

We will engage with our early adopters to make sure they are included in the software development.

Send us a message and let us know your favourite RAW proceesors and imaging tools, and we will make sure our files are compatible with your workflow.
