Ready to buy your first serious continuous lights for shooting pro level talking portraiture? Confused on what size, shape, style of LED light you may need?
For over 16 years, I have been testing photo tools for the manufacturers and for ShootSmarter / Discovermirrorless as the well know as the guy that tells it like it really is.
As coach of the Hybrid Heroes Talent Team, I also guide 14 pro photographers into shooting photo+video+audio and is proud to announce my first group of five continuous lights that live up to his expectations and are ready for daily use. In this video, I choose one specific model in each of the various shapes and sizes of LED lights, from small can sized LEDs, to ringlites, to full 1×1 panels, then report the color and output power you can expect when using these tools under “Real Life” shooting conditions.
“Forget the makers claims of color temp, CRI and wattage equivalencies, most of that is hype gathered from incorrect or biased measurements, instead we show what these lights really do with output power measured at 800ISO, 1/60th second and meter the aperture value to a tenth of an f stop so you know what you’re buying.”
So if you want to know which LED lights the hybrid pro’s on Panasonic’s Lumix Luminary Talent Team, Fuji’s Elite Imaging Talent Team, and DiscoverMirrorless’ Hybrid Heroes Talent Team are using…why not ask their leader, mentor, coach and trainer – Me!
