To get the most out of your lighting set-up you need to know what lights help you get the look and feel you want from your footage. - [Rich] From Tungsten, to Florescent, to multiple types of LED lights that let you control both the RGB color and the color temperature you'll find a wide range of lights out there for any situation. These come in varying sizes from huge light banks to smaller form factors that are comparable to about a GoPro.
