Let There Be Light and Other WFH Essentials with guest Trevor Farrow from Lume Cube

November 19, 2020
Although being well lit meant something very different back in college, nowadays it speaks to our ongoing need to actually be seen while attending video conference calls. And to our ability to create compelling, stylized, artistic photos and videos. With both of those in mind, we explore the science of lighting as we chat with a revolutionary company called Lume Cube that's been producing highly portable lighting solutions for several years. This is a great episode to hear if you want to:
  • Understand the terms and common misconceptions behind lighting
  • Improve your image on video conference calls
  • Take your photography to the next level
  • Differentiate the pros and cons of ring lights, box lights and those fancy umbrellas
  • Figure out which lights best suit your particular use case(s)

In addition, we discuss a whole slew of new and cool gadgets to help you find balance, stay productive and keep your sanity as you get work done at home:
