|Product and Portrait Photography
dedolights are often used in portrait photography to create a „Hollywood“ style of portrait lighting. Direct, soft, gentle and moody styles may be achieved.
dedolights are indispensable for product photography. The classic dedolight as well as the Series 400, in conjunction with the imager (projection attachment) allow the creation of the finest, most precise, highly tuned accents, which cannot easily be recreated in Photoshop. On a high class product shot you may easily find twelve to fifteen dedolights to highlight details, create subtle reflexes and convey the feeling of structures and plasticity. Some photographers go beyond the classic product approach and use the creative potential of the dedolight to make lights a visible part of the image composition.
Car photography is usually done with huge soft light sources. It‘s a remarkable exception when some of the most successful car photography is done with a multitude of dedolights, painting details and reflexes one by one.
Illuminating the delicate shapes of a sculpture or lighting an oil painting, one could easily choose the traditional approach of cross lighting with conventional sources thus losing the charm of the surfaces structure. dedolight allows an unbalanced lighting approach, making the structures of a painting visible, whilst giving subtle modeling to the surface and totally evening out differences of exposure when used with the new dedolight graduated grey filters.
