McNeely recently journeyed to the Costa Rican jungle for an episode of the series. “Litepanels worked great as fill light under the jungle canopy for a zip line adventure segment.”
McNeely finds Litepanels 1x1’s perfect for lighting sit down interviews either indoors or at night. “The soft light provided makes it easy to overlap the light footprint without shadow seams between two or three lights, when using as frontal illumination,” he explains. When used in a three-point set-up a close, tight, well-lit set is achieved.
“I also like the option of powering the 1x1 lights with standard wall juice, or with a quick change of back plates and Anton Bauer Gold Mount batteries we can run the lights in the middle of nowhere. Now that’s a handy option for all EFP producers. You can even clip a number of 1x1s together to create a single large panel of illumination.
“I appreciate the fact that these lights never get hot either,” he adds. “No burned out or exploding bulbs anymore. Use these lights all day and then turn them off and pack them up. For a veteran producer, this is a step up in lighting technology!”
