"The Lastolite Hilite is a really neat, light weight, and portable high key background that can double as a softbox.
...I was intrigued by the simplicity of it and the many ways it could be used for still photography and video work. (Look here to see some nifty example videos of the Hilite and high key backgrounds.) I set out to make a DIY version and not break the bank in the process."
