When it comes to building out your kit, there is the eternal quandary. Constant lights or strobes? What are the advantages of each? What are the disadvantages of each? What are you giving up going with one over the other? This video from The Creative Contrast gives us a small look into why you may want to choose one over the other.
While the video is definitely not super technical, it helps give a general overview of some of the advantages and disadvantages of the two systems. Continuous lights (hot lights) are generally far less powerful, but can be used for videos. We get to see David and Giancarlo put their skills to use in a small shootout, resulting in some very beautiful photos of Kathy Jordan. Something that really was driven home in this video is the fact that many LED lights have multiple color temperatures built in, so it is easy to get a two-tone look without buying extra gels.
While the video definitely could have gone more in depth on the different modifiers for strobes and the different types on constant lighting, it's also nice to see a video not reach really hard for the ten-minute mark just because of The Algorithm. What did you think of the video? Do you use strobes or constant light?
