Frequently working in challenging situations, award-winning director of photography Paul Murray is all too familiar with lighting problems. Having enough light to set up for photo shoots in the dark can be difficult. Holding a flashlight isn’t practical because hands are needed free to arrange the set and the illumination isn’t effective. For these reasons many photographers in this situation use headlamps. With plenty of options it can be difficult to find the right headlamp. Many are poorly constructed and don’t function effectively. However, Mr. Murray swears by the highly popular LED Lighthouse Beacon 1000 from Outdoor Pro Gear.
“Many of our call times are early morning and we have to set up our equipment in the dark. This headlamp seems to be 10 times brighter than the little ones most people wear and much more comfortable. And I like the fact you can adjust the beam’s focus so that you can hold something in your hands and work on it or adjust the lamp to shine out at the equipment you’re setting up”, states Mr. Murray.
The lightweight and sturdy Outdoor Pro Gear Lighthouse Beacon 1000 LED headlamp is constructed from aero aluminum alloy and ABS. The adjustable beam is complemented by convex len-focusing to deliver an even intensity of light across the entire range, ensuring visual clarity. Mr. Murry is so impressed with the quality of this headlamp that he has brought extras for his crew and for use around the home:
“Every time I go on a shoot, crew people use all of my extra headlamps. I have bought 10 so far. I’d advise you to buy at least five because every one of your friends who sees it will want their own. I use it at home to be able to read tiny directions on medication bottles and in my handyman tasks under the house. So glad I bought them.”
