German camera light manufacturer dedolight demonstrates using battery powered lights how to compliment an existing natural light source to get the best out of a scene.
For this demonstration we will be using 3 lights: 2 TECPRO Felloni panel lights with standard diffuser, and a dedolight DLED4 focusing light.
We call this complementary lighting, where light is added to the scene not for the purpose of standing out, but to lift and add to what is already there.
All of the LED lights used are battery powered which make for very quick setup and the means to reposition lights and experiment as you need to. There are no cables to get in the way – no power points needed; because the lights are bi-color you don’t need to bring an assortment of gels with you.
