Speaking of photography lights, everyone must have heard of flashlights and smart phone fill lights. In daily photography, is it better to use a smart phone fill light or a flash? We will compare the types and advantages and disadvantages of the two types of photographic fill light in detail, so that you can have a more comprehensive understanding of the two types of photographic lights, and you can choose a more suitable photographic light in the shooting creation.

The difference between smart phone fill light and flash

The fill light is a kind of constant light. The LED with high brightness is used as the main light source. The biggest feature is that it has a strong light filling effect. It is easy to operate and widely used. Still life, close-up portrait, live broadcast filling,video recording, stage lighting and other shooting scenes are all right, as long as you feel dim scenes can use them to fill light, the price is still very cheap.

There are a variety of fill lights, ring, square, stick, everything!

The most common type of flash is the top hot shoe flash. Of course, the cylindrical light that is hidden in the light box when you take the photo is also the flash. The flash is the most commonly used photographic light in wedding photography and photo studio portrait shooting. One of their commonalities is also the biggest difference from the constant lighting, that is, the power will be much larger, and the color temperature deviation is small. But flashlights are expensive and sometimes more expensive than SLRs.

LED fill light as a rising star, its advantage over the flash is still a little more, we summed up three points:

First:The light-filling effect that can be seen is easy to use. Even if there is no basis for photography, the same operation can be used, and there is no need to wait for a call back, which is more convenient when capturing. What to look at with the flash is not known until the shutter is pressed, and there is a return waiting time of 0.2-10 seconds.

Second:The light quality is softer. In terms of light quality, the light and dark of the light source can be adjusted at any time. The light source of the fill light is softer than the flash light, and it is not necessary to install a soft light cover or a soft light umbrella light accessory when shooting. The light source of the flash has a large output power and the light is mostly hard light. Therefore, in portrait shooting, the flash is often shot by flashing (the lamp head is flashing against the white ceiling and the wall output), and the child is not allowed for one year old. Direct flashing may affect your child’s eyes.

Three: Focus can still be easily achieved in low light. In low-light environments, the use of a fill light can increase the ambient light level by continuously filling the light, making it easier for the camera to complete the focus task, rather than using the flash because of insufficient light when focusing the phenomenon.

The dual color temperature of the fill light can increase the playability of the shot.

However, for objects that require high-light shooting, such as reflectors, shooting with a flash can avoid cluttering light and flare on the surface of the product, such as the shooting of a teacup.

All in all, the fill light and the flash have an advantage. The photographer should choose the most suitable photographic light according to his shooting needs. Here, we give suggestions: for the novice photographer or the daily shooting enthusiast, fill light It is an ideal choice because it is simple and easy to use, the cost is not high, and the applicability is also very strong. Product still life shooting, children’s photography, night shots fill light, even the video fill, web live fill light effect can be satisfied. At the same time, the color temperature of the photographs that are especially taken care of is not affected, or the photographers who require more light and lighter lighter, the fill light is obviously not suitable for you, and the flash should be selected. As for the high-end users, I believe that it is necessary to know that the studio high-power flash with high-power two-color warm fill light and light is the king.
