Rosco LitePad Loop
The lightweight and portable LitePad Loop kept Michael Artsis nimble enough to shoot in offices, boardrooms, laboratories and even on construction sites where crews were installing new equipment. This is also why cinematographer Matt Turve turned to LitePad Loop as one of the central lighting tools he used recently to shoot a low-budget feature entitled Sunny & Ray Ray.
Shooting a feature like this meant a lot of in-home locations, which made it hard to bring in huge lighting packages. One of the innovative ways Matt put his LitePad Loop to work was by taking it off camera every now and then. Sure, LitePad Loop is a great ring light, but sometimes you don’t want the light flat and on-axis – you want it coming from an angle. So, using the Loop’s unique magnetic attachment to the camera, Matt was able to quickly and easily detach and re-attach the Loop to his camera as the scene necessitated.
