Pro’s Killer kit #03 led light

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

Use an LED light when you’re work­ing in low-light con­di­tions. They are small and por­ta­ble, but sur­pris­ingly pow­er­ful. I use a Man­frotto Max­ima-84 (£250/$290) mainly as a fill light, but in low-light sit­u­a­tions it can be­come my main source of il­lu­mi­na­tion. The light is cal­i­brated for day­light (5600°K), but I nor­mally use a warm­ing CTO (Colour Tem­per­a­ture Or­ange) gel in front of the light to cre­ate a warmer re­sult. In this sit­u­a­tion, we were work­ing with the avail­able light from a camp­fire, but the or­ange fil­ter on the LED al­lowed us to ef­fec­tively blend the ar­ti­fi­cial light in so that the re­sults looked more nat­u­ral.
