The Impact Food Photography Kit offers a compact, basic setup with a fluorescent lamp head and a versatile stand that will allow you to shoot your own cuisine or a wide variety of tabletop items. You can enhance the head's quality of light with the included 19.7 x 19.7" softbox or optional diffusion, such as Impact's 33" or 43" White Translucent Umbrella.
I recently purchased this kit and the fixture doesn't seem to seat correctly onto the light stand stud. Is there any special adapter needed for this kit out of the box? It seems as though the hole on the fixture is too shallow, so when I start to tighten the locking nut, the fixture tilts about 20 degrees. I can get it to safely fit snugly, it's just at a weird angle making top down light difficult. Any advise/ suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thanks. -Novice To Lights
Hi, the fixture pushes about 1 1/2 inches into the light stand stud. The bottom of the neck of the fixture should be touching the bottom of the stud ( the silver shiny part ) then tighten it with the locking nut. It should not tilt whatsoever. Make sure it's all the way in before you tighten the fixture. Otherwise you may have either a defective stand or light fixture. Hope this helps!
