    JD Illuminations Instant Overlays, Vol. 2 (as well Vol. 1 and the Instant Lightscaping Overlays) are a few of my favorites from all Jessica her products. I can use this instant overlays for every shoot I do, depending on my mood, the weather during the shoot and the vision I have in my mind.
    These products are easy to use and you can personalize each overlay so fast and easily. It will help your workflow for sure, also for client shoots.
