Setting up an LED Wall Light for my lifestyle studio

I know what you might be thinking... Why the change?? My first reason is I love to experiment with new things and my second reason is I have been trying to achieve a certain style that I can't get with my Hi Lite and Einstein so I decided to try something new. Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE my Einstein!

Lifestyle Photography Studio LED Faux Window Light

I have seen many faux window light LED photography studios by some amazing photographers and that was my inspiration. But, most of their setups require an electrician which I wanted to avoid so I started researching for an easy install LED light and I found these!! Don't worry I will post the links for you.

My hubby knows about LED lights so he helped me choose. I hope I explain this correctly... we chose these lights because of the amount of lumens which makes it brighter, it's not as bright as other LED panels but enough for my smaller lifestyle space. These are 4000LM the higher the LM the brighter the lights are.

For this next part I get mixed up because I am so used to kelvin but in the LED world the lower the number of Kelvin the warmer the lights are and these at 5000k which came pretty close to daylight. Again, my main reason for selecting these lights was the easy install. I might have to play around with editing to get the exact look I want.

Installation took about an hour and a half and it was as easy as plug and play!

This still isn't quite finished, we still need to add the curtains to diffuse the light but I will post an update right here. And, I will also post my results when I do a model session in the studio. I'll keep you posted on my experimenting.
As promised! Here are the links!
