THE LED REVOLUTION has arrived at the local hardware store and we photographers stand to benefit the most. Just about all lighting fixtures now have LED options in addition to incandescent or fluorescent options.
For this project, I purchased an LED flat panel light from my favorite warehouse shopping club. The panel light cost about $20, and it works perfectly for studio portraiture and video lighting. Also, the light is dimmable, which dramatically increases its versatility.
