    Thank you so much for all of the videos you guys make! So great and really helpful how you break everything down. I have a question about the 1/8 and 1/2 cto that I am seeing in the ‘tools we used’ section in many of the videos. Are you applying 1/8 cto to the bestlight 900 led to add more warmth to it? or the 1/2 cto? I’m looking into getting some of these lights because of your tests and they are very affordable. Keep making great stuff!

      Thanks for the kind words of support. I’m glad the videos have been helpful. 🙂

      Yes, the CTO is for warming up the light. (Color Temperature Orange gel – CTO – was designed to warm up the light it was placed on.)

      How much I warm up the light depends on what I’m trying to match, or the look I am trying to get.

      Happy Shooting!
