How is color temperatture used in Photography?

In many studio lighting equipment, you can find some lighting effect are daylight, and some are warm white. But do you know what are the different from these color temperature? Here please let me to show some knowledge for them. Color temperature is a characteristic of visible light that has important applications in lighting, photography, videography, publishing, gellary, museum, broadcast room and other fields. In practice, color temperature is meaningful only for light sources that do in fact correspond somewhat closely to the radiation of some black body, i.e., light in a range going from red to orange to yellow to white to blueish white; it does not make sense to speak of the color temperature of, e.g., a green or a purple light. Color temperature is conventionally expressed in kelvins, using the symbol K, a unit of measure for absolute temperature.



Color temperatures over 5000 K are called "cool colors" (bluish), while lower color temperatures (2700–3000 K) are called "warm colors" (yellowish). "Warm" in this context is an analogy to radiated heat flux of traditional incandescent lighting rather than temperature. The spectral peak of warm-coloured light is closer to infrared, and most natural warm-coloured light sources emit significant infrared radiation. The fact that "warm" lighting in this sense actually has a "cooler" color temperature often leads to confusion.

Usually the cool white is use for photography, videography, broadcast, meeting room. And for warm white, use in the stage, catwalk show, wedding. So it’s so much different effect and function for these 2 color temperature. Do we need to have 2 lights to suit the different ocassion ? Here is a good news for you !! The One Studio have a new model of  TH-361 400W RGBAL led profile spot light

Standard, incandescent,quick and linear total 4 kinds of dimmer curve optional, frequency is adjustable from 500hz-25000hz, flicker-free on the camera. What’s more, This ellipsoidal light continuously mix 2700K~10000k color temperature white light, similar to sunrise to sunset. You can choose 2700K, 3000K, 3200K, 3500K, 4000K, 4200K, 4500K, 5600K, 6000K, 6500K, 7200K, 8000K, 10000K, 12000K; Also you can choose 2 more color temperature, we can set them inside the program also.


It’s so convenient for client to have one light with different color temperature. Clietn can save much money for purchase and transport another light. Also compare to the traditional 2in1 LED, they just can have the light in 3200K and 5600K, but we have the light for 16 kinds of color temperature. So you better have it now ! 

THE ONE STUDIO work with many lighting designers, main products including led leko light, led fresnel spotlight, led soft panel light, led blinder light and so on. We will share more prject with you about the different color temperature.
