The Color 1000 is the brightest, easiest, most versatile, energy efficient LED light bulb.
Kris Graves is a photographer and Studio Manager at Guggenheim Museum, New York. Kris has worked with clients such as GAP, Google, MTV, Samsung, Sony Music and Nike and is now regularly using the LIFX bulb in his work.
Kris stated, “These two photographs were taken as soon as my LIFX bulbs arrived. My cousin Daina needed a headshot and we decided to play around. We powered the bulbs, downloaded the app onto my phone, and within five minutes we were shooting. I sat on the stool and surrounded myself with three bulbs and one behind for the background. She then chose the colors she wanted to be in with me as a model, we then switched places and I made these (right). The color intensity is far superior to competing bulbs that I have used in the past.”
