When I’m considering investing in a new piece of lighting equipment I have two requirements, it to be able to do one of two things really well. It either has to do something none of the other tools in my studio can do on their own, or to be able to do the job of several tools at once. Essentially replacing the need for multiple tools with one tool that can do it all.
I recently decided to take the plunge and invest in the Broncolor Para 133, a tool that actually manages to meet both these requirements and then some. No easy task! This is a really exciting light modifier and I wanted to share the results of my first shoot using it. Along the way I’ll explain what it allows me to do, how I used it, and I’ll take you behind the scenes with lighting diagrams and a BTS image. Consider it a field report of sorts.
