Using LED Lights for Portrait Photography
When it comes to photography, I believe light is a secret and wisdom at the same time. Recently, I have tried new creative photography techniques using LED lights to photo shoot some interesting portraits. In particular, I used a ring LED light and rectangular shaped LED light – pay attention to eyes, so you can see which light was used.
Advantages of LED lights:
- LED lights to remain cool, so I can use colour filters and gels
- an impact of light is visible in a real-time
- ISO 1600 without problems
- colour temperature from 3200K to 5500K
- the lifetime of 50 000 hours
- compactness and financially affordable
There are surely some disadvantages, to illustrate, the power of LED lights is often a debatable topic. However, I think that this technology has been developing in the right direction, so we already enjoy the benefits of LED lights. As I am a professional photographer, I can tell you that I like the portraits I took by using LED lights.
