LitraPro Bi-Color Lights Lifestyle Spots

Cinematographer Timur Civan built a Home Studio Production Package for shooting ads under lockdown. For one such job he created footage for a furniture and home accessory retailer.

Civan eliminated the complication of hiding cables by choosing new battery-operated LED lights by Litra.

He used the LitraPro Bi-Color by the kitchen sink and the garden window to add character to the shots. With up to 1200 dimmable lumen output and color temperature from 3000-6000°K he used it to lend more texture to the scene. At 2.75x2”x1.2”, Civan says, “You can hide it in plain sight.”

He put it to work edge-lighting the actors and to pop in a glint of chrome or gleam from the setting sun. Lighting was especially critical for the clinking-glasses scene, where the foursome sits around a homey dinner table. A string of practical garden lights adds sparkle against the blue cast background exterior showing through the floor-to-ceiling windows in the dining area. Tea candles randomly placed on the table-top produce an authentic, friendly glow.

The RGBWW fixture is a mere 5.5” x 3.9” x 2” yet emits 3000 lumens of 97 TLCI fully tunable, dimmable color. After trying the Studio on a few shoots Civan made up his own quick reference guide to match color output with other popular LEDs brands. Civan also pushed the LitraStudio output into a muslin bounce and an inviting rosy hue washed over the actors and set.
