I know many of you would wonder why I would post a review on a video light…..no worries, I am still a photographer but I have found a great use for the Gistec Flashmate LED video light for my macro work! I think this powerful light offers many possible uses for backlighting, side lighting, and perhaps even using it for rim lighting my subjects. In the image below, I used it to just open up the center of the sunflower as otherwise it would be too dark and without detail.
What’s great about the light is that you can adjust both the light intensity as well as the color temp with the very easy to use dials! This allows you to precisely control you light output just where you need it! The constant light source will be ideal for providing some dramatic light to my macro subjects and I will continue to explore some new uses for it!
