You know, we love a good DIY challenge here at Halumin! In fact, on some of our channels, we’ve been known to whip up some pretty nifty one light tutorials using just a single speedlight and some homemade lighting modifiers. It’s a blast showing you all the creative ways you can capture stunning images with a little ingenuity and a lot of passion. But this time, we decided to crank things up a notch. We thought, “Why not pit our beloved Halumin against the DIY method?” So, in our latest video, we did just that! We set out to create the same image twice – once using the DIY one light method and once using only Halumin powered by a single light. It was a face-off for the ages, and we can’t wait to bite into the results!
Our subject was a scrumptious blueberry cookie with frosting from Half Baked Goodness, and boy, did it shine under the Halumin light! With a few simple adjustments and a dash of creativity, we were able to highlight the cookie’s texture and depth, making it look as good as it tastes.
Lighting Up Your Food Photography with Halumin
When you have a food photography job to do, it doesn’t matter whether you’re an amateur just dipping your metaphorical chicken strip into the food photography sauce or if you are seasoned professional like the Colonel’s original recipe, getting it done efficiently is paramount. Halumin is the revolutionary photography lighting tool to help you achieve that goal. For amateurs and professionals, Halumin can help you make it happen with professional results, with less effort and less gear than traditional methods.
Why Choose Halumin?
So, why should you choose Halumin over traditional lighting modifiers? Well, let’s start with the obvious: it’s super easy to use! No more fumbling with multiple devices or setups that take up a lot of floor space. With Halumin, you get all the lighting you need from a single device. Plus, it’s quick to set up, saving you precious time that you can spend perfecting your shots or munching on your food subjects (we won’t tell!).
Halumin vs. DIY One Light Photoshoot
In our tutorial, we also demonstrated a DIY one light photoshoot using homemade lighting modifiers. While it was a fun experiment, it was clear that Halumin outshone the competition. The DIY approach is a great way to learn photography lighting but it requires more work and adjustments, while Halumin delivers professional-looking results with less effort and in less time. AND you look like a badass pulling up to your photoshoot with Halumin!
