The magic lies in it’s ability to help you easily create professional lighting looks, faster with less gear than traditional setups. Halumin’s Open Cylindrical (OC) geometry is akin to a software preset but in a physical space. This creates a “physical lighting layer,” allowing for intuitive and fast lighting looks. With simple and quick adjustments, users can achieve a vast array of lighting qualities and moods.

Below you will find useful videos and tutorials on how to use your Halumin in various situations. You may also find information on the FAQs page useful for basic questions. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please let us know in the chat window on the bottom corner of this page.
