I like to keep up to date with developments with lighting for stills and video photography, a new light which has been bought to my notice is a powerful 100w LED unit with a CRI ≥94 which makes the PIXAPRO LED100D MKII Daylight Balanced LED Studio Light a unit useful for photographers who need a cool running continuous daylight source for studio & location use. A high CRI Colour Rendering Index https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_rendering_index is indicative of accurate colour rendition where the light emitted is close to full spectrum with no unwanted colour spikes or holes!
The PIXAPRO LED100D MKII Daylight Balanced LED Studio Light is mains or battery powered from a V-Lock battery and features a standard S-Type accessory fitting allowing photographers to utilise existing Bowens S-Type modifiers, reflectors and accessories.

The will be days when natural light fails to cooperate and artificial light is needed. Living in England this happens with monotonous regularity.

For these images of locally grown chillies I used a #lastolite   Skylite Rapid 2mx1m scrim frame with 1.25 stop silk in place. Behind this was a #elinchrom  BXRi250 strobe/flash head with 60cm Portalite softbox, inverted white deflector, front diffuser and my custom-made white liner #foodphotography   #foodporn

There will be times when natural light fails for natural light photographers, today in (not so) Sunny Sussex was one of those days. I planned to shoot some locally grown chillies using window daylight - no chance considering how heavy the cloud was! So resorted to Plan B, artificial light, in this case flash. CLS (lighting diagram) in comments.
Basic set was a Welsh slate roof tile, hessian mat & chillies. Receding background more slate roof tiles with the key light flagged to reduce light falling on the tiles.
Key light was a 2m x 1m Lastolite Skylite Rapid with a 1.25 stop scrim/silk in place, behind this and feathered toward the camera was a Elinchrom BXRi 250 flash head, 60 cm Portalite direct soft box, inverted white deflector, front diffuser and my secret weapon, a custom-made white liner for the soft box.
The Skylight Rapid was about 18 inches from the set. The flash around 18 inches from the Skylight Rapid.
To add contrast a black 30" pop-up "reflector" was used to absorb light frame left.

A little location lighting action with Max DK in bright PM sun, something we don't see much in Sunny Sussex! Sunlight diffused with Lastolite Skylite Rapid 1x1 with 0.75 silk for subtle diffusion - more on my blog http://bit.ly/1x1scrim

"The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium.
Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don't know what to do with it.” - Edward Weston
