Hello Roger and the forum,

I’m currently doing my dissertation about the history of lighting equipment and how lighting equipment has changed over time up to now with LEDs becoming more and more popular. I was wondering is there a specific light or lighting equipment which changed the way you worked?

Thank you for your time.

I would say that the development of large daylight balanced light sources changed the way I light on location. Before HMI lamps were available, which was in fact very soon after I began shooting feature work, the idea of a large daylight balanced bounce source was a struggle.

Hi Roger Thanks for the reply, very much appreciated. I agree I can't imagine a world without HMI lamps. It would be really dark.
