The right lighting can play a crucial role in photography and a photo or video can be marred and ruined by too much light, insufficient light or lights that are not appropriate or misfunctioning lighting and backdrop.
There will almost always be a need for continuous lighting that is that extra degree of brightness to give the illumination necessary as well as strobe lighting which momentarily gives that flash of light.
Back drops are also very important and apart from the green backdrop which is such a standard and sought-after basic backdrop, there are others which depict scenes, walls and more busy backdrops that enhance the interviews or photographic sessions being recorded.
Light modifiers can soften and adjust light and camera speed lights are not unlike strobe lighting.
These are but a few of the essential studio lighting props that help to make a recording or session professional!
