With the launch of Halumin™, a new category of lighting tool, Open Cylindrical (OC) lighting, comes to life.
Halumin™ is the first lighting modifier of its kind and creates truly portable lighting environment. Halumin is as intuitive and as easy to use as your mobile device.
Prosumers and product photography/video professionals can work quickly on location without disrupting their clients. Creators, artisans, artists will not have to learn an entirely new skill to produce photos that help boost sales. For amateur/ hobbyists Halumin cuts the learning curve of lighting, allowing them to achieve pro results with virtually no learning curve.
Open Cylindrical™ Lighting
Halumin can make your small subject photoshoots quick and easy, even in traditionally tricky situations with Open Cylindrical (OC) lighting. Flat lay compositions, transparent and reflective subjects are made easy with Halumin’s OC design. Halumin reshapes the light from your favorite flash or LED continuous lights and surrounds your subject with an even narrow cylinder of light. At the same time it flags the light off of your background and camera lens, creating a narrow staging area within Halumin center for your subjects to shine. The controls are intuitive, move your subject away from the camera and the light gets softer. Move it towards the camera the textural details become more pronounced. Move it towards the camera and in front of the Halumin staging area and you have seamless rim lighting. No resetting lighting stands, reflectors, flags and softboxes to achieve different looks.
