Das Spiel mit Licht und Schatten: Fotografieren mit Kunstlicht

Playing with light and shadow:Photographing with artificial light

With artificial light, photographers imitate the most beautiful picturesque lighting moods of the sun. The flash is traditionally used, but nowadays permanent LED lights are used more and more often. These are easier to use because they show the effect of the light in the photo before the shutter is released. In many cases, they also offer precise adjustment of the color temperature and are sometimes even equipped with colored LEDs or special effects.

Photographer Patrick Engfer also uses them artificial light source gladly for own shootings. For years he has been using a wide variety of Rollei products and with the help of this technology he can take his recordings to a new level and at the same time greatest possible quality to ensure. This was the ideal opportunity for a photo shoot with the Lumen Studio steady lights. The aim was to position the light so that the incoming light imitated the sun and a Portrait with sunset flair arises.  

The final photo:

For the setting, Patrick Engfer needed the model, the camera and the LED permanent light not much other equipment. The LED permanent light was equipped with a daylight-like color temperature of 5,500 Kelvin placed on a lamp tripod outside the window. Since it was raining lightly outside at the time of the shoot, Engfer positioned a large umbrella over the light. This ensured that the device would not be exposed to moisture.

through the easy handling it was easy for the photographer to quickly find the right position for the light. The model was placed in a few minutes and he was able to compare the settings with his camera.
