Fun with Rope Lights
At the Live Nativity, I lit the whole set with one strand of rope lights. I’ve always been impressed about how LEDs can kick out some serious lumens. I was thinking that you could actually use them for photography as a constant light source. So I plugged in the strand and held it up in front of the kids. It’s pretty cool light! And, it gives some pretty killer catch lights. You could manipulate the shape of the lights into anything you wanted and it would look cool. Chuck some cute kids in front of a christmas tree with a fast 85 or 50mm lens and you’re golden.
