Photography lighting is a key part of making gorgeous images. The term for our craft itself literally means drawing with light so being able to light subjects properly is vital for creating excellent images.
Some photographers of all levels of skill and experience have told me that they wish there was photography lighting that was high-quality, easy to use, and within their budget. We found lights for photography that fit these criteria, the TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System.
Here’s a quick look at some of the features that make this new lighting system so exciting for photographers and videographers.
TEKE lights are great as portable portrait lights and also double as excellent video lights. The TEKE lights are available in two different sizes, 20-inch and 40-inch, both of which have an end to end sliding mount which can be fitted to light stands, extension arms, or tripod heads.
They’re also battery powered for true portability. The rechargeable lithium-ion battery is built into each light and has up to a 4-hour run time.
Whether you need lights for a fashion shoot, travel photography, or something in between, these lights are just what the doctor ordered from a portability standpoint.
TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System can be used for video lighting, portrait lighting, small product photography, real estate photography, and just about any other reason you find yourself needing lights for photography.
Part of what makes these lights so versatile is their high CRI (Color Rendition Index) which means you can use them in any situation where you might want high-quality, accurate color lighting.
They can be hand held, mounted to a light stand, or mounted to a tripod. They can be controlled individually or together, can be connected together, and you can use animated color gradients to add a unique lighting style to your images.
And that’s just the start! Typical photography lighting might offer the versatility of adjustable brightness or RGB colors. But in the case of TEKE, you get so much more.
To be usable as portrait lights and video lights, the lights should have some good power behind them. The 20-inch version has an ultra-bright 700 lumen output while the 40-inch TEKE has 1400 lumens.
Coupled with the 90+ CRI, the brightness makes these portable portrait lights a good option for photography lighting of various photographic subjects.
Custom Color Palettes
Brightness is one quality for versatile portrait lighting, the ability to adjust color is another. This is especially important when balancing color temperature to mix with bright ambient lighting such as outdoors in sunlight or under bright indoor lighting.
A custom color palette can also be used to enhance believable background color, to create moods, or for a variety of special effects in your images. And if this sounds complicated to do, TEKE makes it super easy.
Simply upload a photo or video, adjust the selection points to the colors you want to use, and the app will take it from there, copying the color temperature, shade, hue, and brightness of the selected pixels.
Smartphone App Control
The TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System has a smartphone app that controls all the various functions this light has, making them very easy-to-use portrait lights.
Quickly set the mood for the shot with dynamic, animated lighting. You can create and save lighting setups, palettes, and animated effects for future use as well. Add in synchronized DMX lighting effects, pulsing gradients, effects, moods, and movie looks, and you have a wealth of capabilities right at your fingertips.
The smartphone app also opens up the capability to use the next two features.
Reactive to Sound
You can set these lights up to come on, turn off, change color, or change brightness in response to sound cues. This opens up a wide range of possibilities for fun portrait lighting or for video productions. This is especially true given that you have access to a library of sound reactive effects. Again, it’s a matter of a few taps on your phone’s screen to set the mood with sound-reactive lighting.
DMX is a huge feature for modern photography and videography. It is a mix of remote control and preprogramming that works with photography lighting, audio components, and special effects for either portrait lighting or video production. The TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System has DMX control for professional dynamic lighting environments that puts technology used on Hollywood productions right in the palm of your hand (and at a fraction of the price!).
It’s Like Having Your Own Personal Lighting Assistant!
Thanks to the smartphone app, rechargeable battery for true portability, custom color palette, high CRI, ultra bright output and DMX control, it’s like having your own personal lighting assistant for your photo shoots.
Wi-fi DMX control gives the TEKE light an edge in distance and reliability over other smartphone apps reliant on Bluetooth or IR line of site. This means you have even greater flexibility to create gorgeous lighting for your shots.
Given all that the TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System can do for your photography lighting, it is surprisingly low in price. The TEKE Kickstarter campaign will let you get on the deals quicker than the general public so go check it out and see what level you want to join.
When I find something really useful, beneficial, and well priced for photography gear, I like to share the news and the opportunity. This photography lighting system has great features, is high quality, easy to use, and very nicely priced for all it does.
A good system for photography lighting will open up creativity, increase our photographic reliability, and provide us with a means to create gorgeous photography without difficulty. The TEKE Reactive and Animated DMX Lighting System is just such a system usable for still photography and videography and with advanced features seldom found in lighting for a reasonable price.
