Ambient studio lighting at a bargain price

A tight budget doesn’t go together well with studio lighting. An inexpensive but apparently viable alternative could very well be — hold on to your socks — to mount a couple of mood LED lights, provided you can control their solid colours using your iOS or Android device.

I recently review Elgato Avea, a mood lighting system that uses 430 lumen LED lamps. The one feature that actually allows you to use Avea as complementary or ambient studio lighting is the iOS app. This excellent app not only has several mood settings that make the lamps cycle through subtly changing colour schemes, but also a wake-up setting and a collection of solid colour settings. It’s the solid colour group I was interested in for my idea of using these lamps as complementary studio lighting.
