On Camera Lighting That Will Light Up Your Life
Yes, there is a new version of this light available, but I haven’t had a chance to play with it yet. When I do, I’ll be sure to give it a decent write up. If you want professional footage, you’re going to want to understand lighting, and how to light your scenes properly. For more info, check out these articles on Cinematography. But to start with, especially if you’re just shoooting a subject straight to camera, the Amaran AL-m9 LED lights are great. These can be mounted onto your camera or rig using the hot shoe mount to give that added bit of light to your shot.
You could also use it separated from your camera, giving a bit of back or or side fill light. Use multiple to create a basic three-point lighting set up. Or grab some lighting gels and give your scene a little bit of colour.It’s also perfect for run and gun shooting, such as documentary or public setting shooting. Plus at about $65, you can beat it for affordability.
