The ultimate hybrid photo studio is decked out with all LED mains, fills and hairlights so we can shoot still photos or video files at any time. To do that, we need to abandon flash and go to continuous light. LED panels are available now for the broadcast video folks with high CRI rating and are becoming semi-affordable. But are they ready for pro level still photography?
Here are some of my results on LEDs, and I shed a little light (no pun intended ~_^) on the rather misleading CRI ratings issues, and reply to one DiscoverMirrorless email question in this video.
Will Crockett, pro photographer and photo technology innovator, and webTV personality is focussed on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : )
Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell. He's even the photo expert on GeekBeatTV!
For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer.
