Our latest edition of DIY Photography educational content is about lighting. We put together a little production to show the dos and don’ts of lighting. This fundamental guide is meant to help you get a better understanding of how to take better control of your set. Specifically, your lights. Lighting is a fundamental part of both filmmaking and photography. A basic understanding of the concepts and rules of lighting is enough to go to the next level. This course will break down the types of lights, some setups, and some tips.
Godox has launched their new TL60 LED light, and this time it’s not a new strobe style light that takes softboxes, but a tube light. It comes in several kits, depending on the configuration you need and features both an internal lithium-ion battery as well as external AC power options. It also comes with a multitude of control options including on-board, a dedicated remote, a smartphone app or DMX control.
It offers a CRI of 96 and TLCI of 98 to offer the most accurate colours when shooting video or photography, but it’s also RGB – if you hadn’t guessed from the photo above – offering RGB, HSI and Gel colour modes, along with white balance from 2700K-6500K and 13 different effects modes.
