Rotolight Anova PRO Used For Oscar Winners

Mark Mann has again selected to use the Rotolight Anova PRO in a recent photo shoot with two of this year's Oscar winners.

Mann shot Emma Stone (Best Actress winner for La La Land) and Casey Affleck (Best Actor award winner for Manchester By The Sea) using the Anova PRO, an LED location and studio light developed by Rotolight.

Speaking about the Anova PRO, Mann said: "Despite having tested a few continuous lighting panels in the past, I never liked the feel of them. But once I tried the Anova, I found I could get something different. It's subtle, but there's something about the slowness of the light mixed with the quality of the Leica, my camera of choice. The light is absolutely beautiful and gives you a filmic feel."

The Rotolight Anova Pro is the ideal LED light for studios and location work, offering great flexibility and quality. Featuring a bi-colour LED system with AccuColour technology for colour rendering, and dual controls for fast, tuneable colour aided by an accurate colour temperature display, the light is known for its round shape, which creates Rotolight's signature catch light effect.

Anova PRO also delivers high speed sync flash capability, and no recycle time.

"There's also something about the wrap of the light. I still can't quite put my finger on why the Anova is so good. The light is so versatile that it gives the shoot a very different feel, you can move light to wherever you want to get the desired effect and see what you're actually shooting. It works out really well.

"I do a lot of shoots, and the type of people I photograph have seen and done everything, so it's great to have something different on your shoot. When you are working with people in the industry who have seen it 100 times before, then having something different that creates a conversation, like the ANOVA, is great. The fact that the lights are beautiful makes me look good too," concludes Mann.
