Video Gear: Show Some Light On The Subject

Video light is an often overlooked and confounding aspect to video production to a lot of people. That’s why having a really good low light camera is important.

But in many shooting situations, adding light is what you need to do and you can do it in a pinch fairly inexpensively.

In this video I talk about:

  • Why you need to bring some extra light on a shoot;
  • One inexpensive portable lighting option and where I found it;
  • And why it comes in handy.

Our Video Light Recommendations

Sima Light – Lightweight, inexpensive LED light that is less than $30.

Rotolight RL48-A Interview Kit – A more expensive option, but we saw first hand how nice this light was from Rod Gammons of Rotolight when we were at NAB earlier this year.

What type of portable lighting options have you found? Please share below!
