First Studio Portrait Shoot with LED Only

Yesterday was a big day.  I made it thru two portrait shoots in the studio using no flash and lit the entire job using LED Only. Here’s the latest on shooting hybrid with LED in the studio. The lights used were the Quantum Omicron ringlight for the bold “shadowless” look you see, then I used a cluster of three Manfrotto ML 840 lights mounted inside a 6 foot Elinchrom Octa, and a few shots were done with just the LED cluster off to the left side with no diffusion and the Omicron used on-camera as a fill light.  More, LOTS more to come.

Will Crockett, commercial hybrid photographer, photo technology developer, and webTV personality is focused on learning how to master hybrid imaging. The skillful blend of photo+video+audio is clearly the future of photography, but how do we shoot and shape and share and sell these hybrid "eProducts"? Dunno, but with Will Crockett as the technical genius and unstoppable force behind this transition from shooting still photos into creating pictures with depth and dimension we will surely figure it out! : ) Will is an open, honest, bright guy that shares what he learns here on this website about hybrid, eProducts, mirrorless cameras, and all the wonderful software tools that allow us to make better, smarter images for share or the sell. For years, non-pro photographers and pros alike have seen Will's videos, gone to his fun live events, and learned how to be a smarter photographer. Take a look at Will's current (and classic) images at, his consulting work for clients big and small at, and the great info on hybrid eProducts and mirrorless cameras on, and of course his premium videos at Will is credited with the construction of the Lumix Luminary talent team, and the Fujifilm Elite Talent team, and is our "coach" of the Hybrid Heroes.

    That’s a pretty cool eProduct! Nice to see you taking the G5 out for a spin and at high ISO. Do you find the need to shoot at higher ISO because of the LED lights output?
