Okay… so here’s the deal. I have video lighting but I seem to think that I might have a reason to kick myself in the pants.
I have been doing some research on on the internet on Do It Yourself video lighting.
Here is my situation.
One of my lights disappeared on me. I need one next weekend so I figured I try a DIY project.
The big thing right now seems to be LED bulbs. I recently went to Radio Shack and bought about 25 LED’s and a circuit board, some wire and some Lithium Ion batteries (at least I think that is what they are… the fancy ones for still cameras). I am not completely done yet (and I will post a picture when I am) but I just soldered the LED’s together and hooked them to the batteries and went to Lowe’s for some flat metel and made a Barn Door light housing and I was ready to go.
Like I said though, it is not assembled yet but should be soon.
Has anyone tried this before? I have done some preliminary tests and the lighting is amazing!
I’ll keep you updated.
