A video featuring Carla Monaco and Damien Lovegrove. It was shot on location at Mill Farm in Wedmore and The George Inn, Wedmore.

A short video showing how I light interior portraits using the latest generation of LED continuous lights. I use three setups in two locations to share tips and ideas that you can incorporate into your own photography. Select 4k by clicking on the cog for the best viewing experience.

    Very nice! The warm colour is (more) difficult to get with flash. What you see is what you get although I often find it harder than it looks when you are demonstrating :-) I’m in for the Scattergels, I’ll put myself on the list.

      Hi Paul,

      Thank you. I use CTO gel on my flash when I want a warmer look. I still don’t have enough people interested to make another Scattergel batch. My guess it will be June before I get that project resurrected. I need to do the web pages and work out a way of sending them to Europe that doesn’t involve me becoming registered for VAT in 27 countries.

      Kind regards,

        Hi Damien,

        Thank you for your reply. I’m in no hurry but I am interested so I’ll keep an eye on it. Luckily I have the (slightly smaller?) pre-brexit Scatterflash Gels but love to have a separate set of them. I understand that since BREXIT some things didn’t get easier. I almost wonder if it makes any sense to get them printed in a EU country like for instance The Netherlands (where I happen to be from) :-)

        Kind regards,
