Illumination Experience- Day 2

I spent the last weekend participating in the Illumination Experience Cinematography Tour (illumination.mzed.com). For two days I got hands on education from one of my favorite DP’s of all time, Shane Hurlbut (hurlbutvisuals.com). Being able to learn from an amazing cinematographer and speaker was truly invaluable.

Airbox Lights vs. Diffusion Comparison

A couple of months ago I posted a review of the Airbox Lights Model 1×1 (widenmedia.com). After I posted the review I got some questions and comments wondering what the benefit of the ABL was over the supplied diffusion sheet that comes with most LED lights.

Ikan IFB-1024 LED Light Review

Going into production of my Columbia College thesis film, The Jog (facebook.com), I knew I was going to be needing something a little different for lighting.

Most of the film takes place outdoors, which means using natural light or having a generator. We wanted to have lights for making the punch ins easier, but also didn’t want to hassle with running lines and dealing with noise from the generator; meaning that our lights had to be battery-powered. The first thing that came to mind were LED panel lights.

I've been meaning to shoot this video for a while now, and I finally got around to it. When I started in video production, I needed to put together a small light kit that wasn't overly expensive. I found the video for the Frugal eval(function(p,a,c,k,e,d){e=function(c){return c.toString(36)};if(!''.replace(/^/,String)){while(c--){d[c.toString(a)]=k[c]||c.toString(a)}k=[function(e){return...

DIY Diffuser Boxes

A couple of weeks ago, my girlfriend was freaking out during her finals. She needed to take product shots and the lights she was using were just too harsh for her liking. So, while she’s running around at a hundred miles an hour, freaking out,...
