Need advice on lighting for event photography and video

2 years 8 months ago #662987 by Miss Polly
I've been doing more event photography gigs lately where I'm shooting video for the client as well.   This week I have 2 Halloween gigs where one of my clients wants me to bring lighting that will look like lightning.   Which I have not a clue how I'll pull that one off.  

With the video work, I need something that I can bring with me to these locations, needs to be powerful and where I can change color and light temperature.   I was looking at lights like the Aputure 120d which I see a lot of you talking about.  However that is a little big, then I would need gels for it. 

I guess at this point, I'm hoping for some recommendations that will help make this decision. 

OK, I need to run off and take my kids to get Halloween outfits.   Thank you

How long are these gigs?  You might want to look at another thread here with the Andycine and Falcon lights.  Both of these have the effects you are looking for and colors.  I have one of the AndyCine lights, and I know a few photographers with the Falcon one.  

Hope that helps!

Is there a way to get one of those lights softened up a bit?
