Photo/Digital Video Lighting Kit

July 1, 2009

One of my goals this summer was to increase my photography skills. To that end I’ve completed one course in using a digital SLR and I will be starting another course next week. The quality of my pictures is already showing improvement.

An important thing to consider when taking pictures is to get good lighting. Last August I told you about the Portable Lighting Studio for shooting smaller objects. Just as the name implies, it is very portable. I have one and use it quite often. Today I’m going to focus on something a bit larger. The Pro 100 watt “Cool-Flo” Fluorescent Photo/Digital Video Lighting Kit provides you a total of four 300 watt equivalent lights with two reflective umbrellas and stands. While it is not nearly as portable as the Portable Lighting Studio, it does come with cases for the umbrellas and stands. I ordered a set for myself and am looking forward to doing some shooting with them in the near future.

They are fluorescent lights, so the color is a bit “cooler” than incandescent lights. It is easy to adjust the color temperature in your camera or RAW processing software to compensate for this. You’ll also be able to avoid the heat and the electricity costs associated with incandescent lights. The lights are also designed for those who are filming video. So no matter the reason you need the lights, you might want to check this set out.
