Chimera Lighting for Photo and Video

Posted: January 30th, 2012 | Author: | Filed under: Chimera, video production | Tags: , , | No Comments »

As a professional photographer and owner of Lee White Photography, I have been a longtime user of Chimera gear with my strobes.  When I seriously started shooting video along with my photography, I was faced with using some type of continues light.  I wanted to keep the same lighting style I had developed over years of experience so one of the answers was obvious, continue to use Chimera.  The only change I had to make was move to the heat resisted Film & Video Chimera lighting gear.  I now have the same gear I’m comfort working with and can shoot motion as well as stills.

Chimera also introduced me to some new innovative products that I really enjoy like the Panel Frames/Window Patterns that are much more effective then the traditional cucoloris.  Rather than a single pattern on a solid 4X4 frame I have a choice of patterns on three different frame sizes which collapse into a small bag.  Chimera also has a line of Chimera constant lights that are mated with the Film & Video Chimera lighting gear and deserve a look.
