LED Flashlights, Great For A Focus Light

Image from

I ran into these cool flashlights from a student in the Mentor Series Workshop in New York City. We used them to allow the camera to auto focus in a dimly lit restaurant. Later we also use a pair of them to give a champagne bottle a nice backlit glow in anther shoot. The have now found a place in my location kit that I take on every job.

You can find them here on Amazon

No-Moiré Netting Background, From California Sunbounce

This netting is primarily used in the film and video world when doing an interview. Usually it is placed 5-6 feet behind the subject. It is perfect for placing behind your subject to give a soft diffused look to the background. The result is that the background is darker and slightly out of focus.
