Supporting the next generation of lighting system & camera platform innovation
01 June 2020
Czech photographer Miroslav Tichy once said that photography is simply painting with light.
Light Revolution, a lighting and camera system manufacturer, with the support of Electro Mechanical Systems Ltd (EMS), has taken the concept of painting with light straight into the 21st century.
Developed by founder Patrick Llewelyn-Davies, Light Revolution provides creative lighting systems for the film, photography and photogrammetry industry. These systems use long exposure techniques to manipulate lighting in product imagery.
The Light Revolution base system comprises 15 main components and takes just minutes to assemble, meaning that innovative and eye-catching images can be captured in moments.
“We’ve taken the concept of painting with light and brought it straight into the modern era,” said Llewelyn-Davies. “The central hub of the base system rotates the arms and delivers power to the lights. The system also comprises two arms with pylons to attach the lights and adjustable legs, which support the hub. There is a separate support assembly, complete with a 1000mm diameter circular tabletop on which the object in question can be placed – ready for capturing.
“We have developed a precision-engineered system that uses high-quality components to ensure a smooth and seamless experience for the user – and capture the most wonderful images possible,” added Llewelyn-Davies.
When developing the system, Llewelyn-Davies recognised the need for high-quality motors, which would enable the rotating turntable to move smoothly and effortlessly.
