Continuous light

Continuous light is understood in artistic photography as an artificial light source that illuminates a motif over a longer period of time. One of the advantages is that, in contrast to natural light, there can be no light fluctuations. The distance between the subject and the lamp as well as the output of the continuous light lamp have an influence on the brightness of the object to be exposed. Another advantage of artificial permanent lighting is that the quality of the photo can be recognized before the actual picture is taken, since shadows and brightness can be regulated by adjusting the height. This is particularly important in analog photography. The disadvantage, however, is that the continuous light can produce color distortions, especially if a little daylight is also involved.

Our systems use sustainable and gentle LED lighting: by default, it is only switched on during the scan and slowly raised and lowered within a second to protect the operator’s eyes. This mode of operation extends the service life of the LEDs, which are generally very long-lived, even further.
