Why Do You Need a Studio Flash Strobe Light Kit?

Investing on a studio flash strobe kit is the next probable step for photographers who wish to bring their craft to the next level. Much about photography is how much a person knows about their light source. You need to know more than just which brand might be best for your lighting needs. You also need to know how to manipulate the lighting to make the set have the atmosphere that the photographer has in mind. Of course daylight is usually the best light, but not if you're trying to mimic a particular mood.Cost is also a consideration. Dramatic scenes can be cast with either continuous lighting or a studio flash strobe. Continuous lighting uses lots of electricity, and the bulbs tend to overheat and burn out very quickly. Strobes, although more expensive up front, will ultimately cost less over their lifetime.A basic Studio flash strobe lighting kit would be made up of two strobe lights with their own tall light stands, a shorter light stand, varied reflectors, soft boxes and an umbrella. The shorter l...


Video Production - White Balancing and Color Temperature Explained

If the color of the video you shoot is messed up, chances are high that the problem is either with white balancing the camera or the "color" of the light you are videotaping in. These two things are a bit on the technical side when it comes to making video but they are not really that hard to understand. White balancing and color temperature are intricately related and any discussion of one will include the other. White balancing is an adjustment you make to the camera that tells it what kind of light you are recording in so that the camera records video the correct color. Small, automatic cameras always have automatic white balancing so you do not need to worry about it, but larger video cameras have manual white balance control which gives you better quality. Now a small automatic camera can easily be overwhelmed by different colored lights and not be able to handle it, but outside of changing your light, you would have no control over the situation. WHY DO YOU NEED TO WHITE BALANCE? Different types of...


Video Editing Software - What is the BEST?

I often have people ask me, "What's the best video editing software to use?" My answer is always, "It depends." What are you going to edit? How much experience do you have? How complicated do you want to get? What is "best" for one person won't necessarily be best for the next person. Personally, I use Final Cut Express. I love it. FCE will do almost everything it's big brother, Final Cut Studio will do. The biggest difference between the two is in the number of video file formats it works with. Final Cut Studio works with a larger number of professional grade formats. I still shoot on mini dv, which is accepted in Final Cut Express, so I saved myself a bundle and bought FCE. ($1,200 vs. $300) Validation for my luv of FCE came when I read Videomaker Magazine's annual Best Products of the Year awards. Videomaker gave Final Cut Express the "Best Video Editing Software" title. According to Videomaker, FCE is a fantastic, low-cost stepping stone into professional-grade editing. The newest version, FCE 4.0 ...
