I am in the process of consolidating and adding to my image galleries on the Lovegrove Photography website and I decided to post a collection lit with Lupolux fresnel spotlights. These lighting fixtures are more popular than ever and their user base is growing by the day. LED’s are the way forward in photographic lighting and Lupo are leading the way. The latest LED units have a CRI of >95 for the photographers units and a CRI of >97 for the slightly more expensive Q dot series for broadcasters. Lovers of HMI technology are also catered for with the ever popular Lupolux 800. Here are the links you need:

    Hi Damien, I love your work, it blows me away every time I see it. One question regarding the Lupo’s, if I may? How do they fare being used outside, particularly at dusk?

    Kindest Regards

      Hi Jason,

      Thank you for the compliments on my work. The Lupos love dusk. They work best in 200 Lux – 700 Lux environments so that’s dark shade/ dusk or woodland covered plus restaurants, hotels, kitchens or bright interiors too. I hope this helps, Damien.

    Hi Love your work i have Nikon D3 and Nikon 70-200 would they work well with DayLed 1000
    I am a wedding Photographer i shoot Potraits after first dance and Print on site Regards Michael

      Hi Michael, The Lupolux DayLed 1000 will work with any camera. Use a frost diffuser gel to give a pleasant softness to the light. Other party goers will be able to grab shots over your shoulder too. People lit with the Lupolux 1000 look amazing on phone cameras too ;) I’m not sure if this is an issue.

      Kind regards,

    When shooting studio Portraits with Canon D 11 I shoot at 200 sec at f10 ISO 100 – I have Xe 2 and cannot find out how to do similar and still see what i’m shooting – the image can not be seen at the constant f10 regards Jim

      Hi Jim, Just switch off ‘Preview Exposure In Manual Mode’ and you will be good to go.

      Cheers, Damien.

    Yes, I should remember this and I should have asked you when you were here :-) But now when I have my own x100t and this weekend have tested x-t1 I want to know how you do some things… For example the beautiful first pic on

    1. Do you shoot in raw or jpg?
    2. If you shoot in jpg, which film simulation do you use?
    3. Do you the retouch the pics yourself? Maybe there is not much retouch :-)

    Regards, Benny (maybe soon a x-t1 owner :-) )

    PS. I want to sell my Nikon D4 and my 70-200 mm. But I´m a little worried about shooting weddings in dark situations with x-t1…

      Hi Benny,

      Sorry for my delay in replying.

      1. Raw and I process in Lightroom. I select the Pro Neg s film simulation in Lightroom.
      2. Not Applicable
      3. Yes I use Lightroom with a maximum of 60 seconds on each image.

      The X-T1 with the 50-140 is a better combo for shooting weddings than the D4 and 70-200 VRii. It is lighter, sharper, better OIS etc. Use a Nissin i40 Flash if you need TTL.

      Cheers, Damien.
