ProMaster's new Chroma TL9RGB Tube Light is not only perfect for creative lighting in your photography or videography set ups, it’s also great for light painting! Promaster Ambassadors Frankie Spontelli and Ross Bernards took this light for a nighttime adventure in Utah to explore light painting! 

Spontelli and Bernards found many benefits to using this light on their shoot. With the ability to pair multiple lights in one app, they were able to individually control the colors, temperature, intensity, and modes of each paired light in their set up for easy adjustments and unlimited creativity. 

They recommend moving the light through the scene during your long exposure to create dynamic light trails. These movements can include sweeping motions (to highlight specific areas or create abstract patterns that add a sense of motion and energy to your photos), perfectly seamless lines, or circles. Light painting can be difficult at first but is a super fun way to add more visual interest to your nighttime images. 

This light is also great for selectively illuminating elements in your images like plants or rock formations while keeping the starry sky in the background well exposed. Selectively lighting objects in your images can add depth and dimension to your images and make them more interesting to look at. 

Because the TL9RGB tube light is so compact and lightweight, it’s easy to handle and control for more precise lighting painting. Try different angles, distances, and movements until you get look you want! 

Spontelli and Bernards’ tips for light painting! 

  1. Plan your composition by scouting your location during daylight. This will help you identify interesting foreground elements and plan how you’d like your image to look.
  2. Practice and Experiment with different techniques and settings to see what works best for your scene.
  3. Work with a friend, especially for more complex scenes. One person can handle the camera while the other paints with the tube light.
  4. Be patient and be prepared to take multiple shots and adjust your technique as needed. 

Light painting can be a fun photography challenge and Promaster’s TL9RGB tube light provides an easy to use tool for a challenging photography style! 

Whether you’re light painting, lighting a portrait, or setting up your next video shoot, this light is an awesome choice for creatives looking for a reliable and affordable lighting option! Check it out in store today or visit our website to pick yours up today!
