Before you start business for photo studio rental Singapore, you need to know how to choose correct shed lights. Choose suitable shed light as same as buying camera, there are many types of sheds light, because different brands of sheds light on the lamp connected ring will vary, the joint will also affect the choice of original lamp, or is using a deputy plant lighting accessories. And single shed light is most beginner players will buy studio lamps and lanterns, but when the choose and buy the primary attention is shed lights on the minimum output, considering the light output and count and and shot the scene of common aperture setting. In the end how to choose it? To mark a solution to your doubts!
A single lamp should be most people first buy the lamp. Its advantage is the choice of more and low prices, and some low watt single lamp even more than an outside flash is also cheaper, but can provide a more stable output; so if it is not necessary to use TTL (The Lens Through, from the camera’s internal metering) function, Mark will recommend to buy a shed light. Just choose shed lights on the beginning of the system to be clear, this is the same as you start with a monocular, because the different home lighting is also different, and even in the choice of the original lighting also have a large gap. A niche label, there may be no other manufacturers all lamp equipment. And this will let you in the play of light limited a lot, even in plants of lamps and lanterns will be limited.
Mark, as early as the use of a domestic E brand lights, is indeed very durable, when used to change the system, but only one last to change the light bulbs; and when it has been flashing about about one hundred thousand times, more than the limit of the manufacturers test! Just the way the manufacturer’s umbrella is different from other home, so Mark in the use of the umbrella of the factory, there is no way to install the normal way, and to tie up with tape, very inconvenient, so this point to clear.
Now the advantage is that there are factories manufacturers began to produce ten thousand in the ring, which is now the photographer is really a great boon. But mark personal use, if the funds permit, or will buy the original lamp to use, after all, in the color temperature and sturdy sex or poor.
because the manufacturers to the shallow depth of field of the atmosphere, so the picture used two 200 Watt shed light, output reduction to probably only 8 watts, and the brightness of the lamp, shoot conforms with the photos of the manufacturer’s atmosphere.
Pay attention to the minimum
In the selection of lamps, in addition to the output size, the minimum output is to be considered; after all, the maximum output, we can also use ISO to replace, plus the current noise reduction effect is good, so you can not worry about improving the output of ISO, but if you want to reduce output, which is not very easy, plus the current ISO50 high light condition is not good, so the choice of 1/32 above the small output lamp support is also a need to consider the elements. For example, South Korea brand fomex or Japanese comet lamp can support to 1 / 32, to shed to manufacture very shallow depth of field shooting techniques is necessary. Also due to the relationship between the current of the photosensitive component, under the same aperture, APS-C often than complete piece deep 1eV depth of field, so small output of the lamp can also be more beneficial for APS-C frame to shoot photos of the amplitude of the depth of field.
Again to be mentioned is that the studio lights have a special shoot lights, lights and electric barrels. Mark often suggest that most people by outdoor lamp and a single lamp start first, if it is used to take the outdoor, can consider buying outdoor flash light; shoot outside light and special lamp equipment, shot out of the results tend to exceed our expectations. And currently outdoor lamps are bigger and more lightweight, power is stronger, regardless of is taking photos outdoors or in a coffee shop when the mobile studio lights are a good choice.
Of course, outdoor lamp is more problematic is output are not great, but also the power not shed lights on so fast (but if not shooting, in fact, is good enough), and usable power restrictions, so in the indoor single lamp or the best a choice. Of course, if the financial license, large output and quality stable electric bucket is also a good choice. But in any case, if really want to enter the studio to shoot the world, shed light is a necessary investment.
Manufacturers want to shoot photos of some natural light window, because it is in the evening, so the mark on the application of jump lights, placed behind the curtains and small output, light hit the windows are closed light but not too hard.
Light output and number selection
Through the above analysis, we have to choose to buy the lamp output and count? On Mark’s personal experience, the first to look at the size of the studio. If shooting space in 5 flat below the ceiling height below 1 m 3, I will recommend buying small wattage of the lamp is good – like 300 ~ 400 Watt is the small wattage of lamp, if can buy 200 Watt is the best, because you at the time of the shooting aperture control values can be very high.
What is the aperture control value? Mark personal feeling, actually filmed in studio does not necessarily have to use a small aperture in the shooting; to be honest, this and with a DC shoot panoramic deep what difference does it make? In particular, shed some take the king shooting, if you want to filming polishing of the imitation of natural light, in fact, f / 4 or more large aperture is the best.
We can think about it, you are in the indoor natural light shooting, will use f/4 above the aperture? Unless you have large windows three or more, or in fact, simply can not meet the light above f/4 aperture. So to the imitation of natural light, of course, to start the aperture. If you normally use f / 4 below the aperture value, the light output of course is not too big; so mark suggest that you under the condition of small space, choose small compared to the light output, mainly because it can provide smaller output for you to shoot. And why do you think about the ceiling? Because the ceiling will reflect the light (of course, if it is black shed, the situation is not so) so in 3 meters below 1 of the ceiling, because the amount of reflection, so Mark would recommend to buy a small force of light.
If you have more than 5 space in space, and the ceiling of 1 meters above 3, it may be about to buy about 600 watts of lights, because a large space, light reflection is less, relative, it is to use a large output to make up this part, so we can use the size of the flat to decide.
The number? Although it is said that the more the better, but the general economic situation, of course, there is no way to get this, but Mark is the proposed lighting of the lamps (including external flash) at least three or more, preferably four. Because in three situations, most is worthy, but if it is using the paper background lighting conditions, sometimes three teams will be more difficult, especially the lighting and lighting complement; if there is a lamp, then in most of the shooting conditions are can cope with the. So if ok, please buy at least three lights. Create a professional photo studio rental service in Singapore is not easy, beside money invest, you need to learn all types of light and how to set up lights to your customer.
