Lights, Camera, Action!

Lighting is so important, it brings the subject into the foreground, away from a messy backdrop.  It can be used to accent a particular area, cast shadows, make a scene look dramatic or soft.

Lighting is absolutely key and should always be considered before the cameras start to roll.

Our go-to set up for interview lighting is a traditional 3 point system, but we also have a secret weapon, the ‘Aputure Amaran AL-M9’ (catchy name…).  These little lights are just a touch larger than a credit card and weigh a measly 140 grams, making them a perfect light for travel.

The AL-M9 comes with gel filters, it has a 9 step dimming option and an internal battery.

If you’re interested in one of these little beauts then you can check them out on CVP (that’s where we get all our equipment), by clicking here.

Loving the @aputuretech AL-M9 pocket sized LED light. Perfect for accent or fill lighting, always in our kit bag. So handy when travelling abroad! 💡 . . #film #video #lighting #m9 #videomaker #videoproduction #ledlights #led #pocketsize
