Of course, that approach really ups the ante on my lighting. And, that’s where Litepanels LEDs are key to my getting the shots.”

To create an urban cityscape with dark, cool shadows amid the building canyons, and to make it as real as possible in the multi-camera world, is a daily balance of shadow and light. I’m not going for a bright and colorful saturation of the reds and oranges but for more muted, cooler and grainier tones, with less fill light. It’s more single direction source and minimal, if any, augmentation. Litepanels LED lighting helps me achieve this.”
