Fluorescent Lighting for Photography and Video
Posted on March 12 2014
At Fovitec, our StudioPRO Continuous lighting, also known as daylight fluorescent lighting, makes it is so easy to get started shooting! Whether it is for photography for videography, all of our Fluorescent light bulbs are Daylight balanced at 5500K, or Kelvin color temperature, making it easy to mix ambient light with your studio lighting. StudioPRO fluorescent lamps also convert electricity more efficiently than an incandescent lamp, or household bulb, which means you get about (5) five times more light for the same amount of electricity!
Fluorescent lighting is so easy to use, because you simply plug and go! There is absolutely no camera syncing required, therefore it can be used with any camera including Canon, Nikon, Sony, Pentax, Olympus, etc. We often recommend this type of lighting to beginners, because it has a “what you see is what you get” aspect. When you are first learning how to light your subject, these lights help you literally see how light is wrapping your subject as you are physically moving the lights around. They are compatible with different StudioPRO light modifier options, such as umbrellas and softboxes, which make them very versatile.
Fluorescent lighting is ideal for food, people/portraits, and plants since it stays cool to the touch, therefore won’t melt your subjects! It is the easiest type of lighting to use when starting up an online business. We have sold numerous kits and fixtures to photographers wanting to sell jewelry, crafts, fashion, and other products online. Fluorescent lighting is what we recommend for beginning photographers and videographers who want to look professional right from the start.
When it comes to photography lighting, Fluorescent is not only easy to use, Fluorescent lighting is affordable as well (and dare we say cheap?)
