Lighting for all?

Lighting for all

So, does your videographer have the lighting necessary for all situations? Or does he or she bring along their LED or Tube panels and a single soft spot?

Depends what you pay for, especially if you value the time they need to set and prep to produce quality for re-use.

Trained as a fashion photographer, I know lighting, even though the equipment has changed over recent years, the use of light is the same. As well as clothing, although make-up for lighting less so.

Any videographer will have the camera and some sound equipment, but the trick is the lighting.

A recent location shoot required some in-fill for a dark actor, which required a simple handheld/desk mounted LED, self-powered, to create improved illumination for her features. Easy.

And then it just comes down to the ideas, the script and the direction.

Lighting – plenty of choice for all situations?
