Product photography can be a lot of fun, especially when you start to experiment with light painting. In this video, photographer Mark Duffy shows us how he does his long exposure product photography using the new KYU 6 LED lights and Godox MS300 strobes in the studio on a pair of trainers (or “sneakers”, for those of you in the US).
The popular wearable Lumiee LED lights have received an upgrade. Spiffy Gear has today announced its successor, the KYU-6. Like the original Lumiee, it comes in 95+ CRI bi-colour and clean wavelength RGB flavours, but KYU-6 comes with finer brightness settings, better weather resistance, and you can now charge it while using it.
Slow-motion video is a lot of fun to shoot. I’ve been playing around with it myself a bit since recently receiving the Insta360 ONE R, which is capable of shooting up to 200fps. It can be tricky, though. You need subjects that benefit from being slowed right down for a start. And if you’re using artificial lights, you need ones that are flicker-free at the fast shutter speeds required for high frame rates.
Filmmaker Edden Ram recently teamed up with the folks at Spiffy Gear to overcome both of these challenges, bringing skateboarders, capoeira and fire dancers and more together to bring water, light and motion together for a pretty awesome final result.
With cameras and lenses out of the way, it’s time to light your scene. So, you’ll need lights. I’ve noticed a distinct trend over the last year towards continuous lights, so while there are some flashes and strobes in this list, we’ve put quite a few of our favourite continuous LED lights in this year’s list, too.

DIYP’s Cinematography start-up package sweepstakes
Spiffy gear has released some pretty interesting products over the years. Products like the Light Blaster and, more recently, as they’ve started getting into the world of LED lighting, Spekular. Now, they’re expanding their LED lighting range with a small, wearable LED light called Lumiee.
Lumiee is what they’re calling a “slap light” and as the name suggests, it works like those slap bracelets many kids had in school back in the 80s and 90s. Lumiee is available in two flavours. One is a cinema grade 95+ CRI bicolour LED while the other is a “mood-generating” RGB LED light.
Spiffy Gear has produced some pretty interesting products over the last few years, including the very popular Light Blaster, and Spekular LED lights. At NAB 2019, they have debuted a new type of LED light, designed for wearing, wrapping around things and placing in tight spaces where you want to add just a little bit more light. It’s called Lumiee, and DIYP caught up with Spiffy Gear at the show to find out all about it.
