[Bill Davis] "If that's what you do - hotel room interviews - LEDs are great. And you can use them as key, background and rim (hair lights) perfectly well. Add a pop up bounce and you can do an interview in a contained space with no problem."

Bingo! That's my bias err background. Shooting interviews in closets (offices) in NYC.

[Bill Davis] "The problem comes up when you're not doing a single person interview - and you're not in a small hotel room - and you're not shooting constrained to working with battery power.

Then you need a totally different array of tools.

If you want to control light, fresnels with barn doors, ellipsoidal with pattern projectors, and similar tools will do a vastly better job than any LED array of helping you create more visually interesting backgrounds."


And that's when I go back to my tungsten lights. I don't see any "reasonable" cost/control replacement for these yet.
