Blog . LightKit
LightKit LightKit, by FreeLunch, is available for $1.99 in the iTunes Store. With twelve available full-screen studio light options, this application is ideal for creating reflections and lighting close-up shots of small objects in photo and video. The light intensity isn't too strong, so this utility produces best results in partial to complete darkness. Also, it is a bit tricky to get a good shot with the iPad being so close to the subject, so shooting miniatures and small objects is recommended. The lighting options are limited, but the developer, Peter Hartwig, promises on iphoneography.com that new features will be added with the next update along with additional light sources. I'll have my fingers crossed for an option to upload my own full-screen images of light sources and the ability to control the brightness output directly within the app. Until then, check out the available "Choose Light" options and a short demo of the app in action!
