Staff Pick: Portable LED Lighting

Proper lighting can be an afterthought when you’re busy taking a photo or making a video. In Studio 300 both our A and B/C spaces have terrific preset lighting. But what do you do if you need lighting in the field? Choose from one of our two LED light kits (one 3-light or one 4-light kit). Both provide bright, dimmable light so you can get the right look.

This Staff Pick brought to you by Steve. Stop by Studio 300 and see these lights in action.
