You can improve your video skills quickly with great photography accessories from Aputure and Deity. I recently sent several of their products, Aputure lights and Deity mics, out to independent writers for reviews and I was quite surprised at the enthusiasm in those reviews. If you are a photographer or videographer, read the reviews then enter to win some of these great accessories in this contest.

Aputure provides unique lighting options everywhere you go

You can’t always predict what the lighting conditions will be when you take your camera away from the controlled conditions of your home or studio.  Even at home, you might want to expand you lighting options with softer light source projected from an odd angle, or perhaps adding a dash of accent hues in pink or blue to the situation for a dramatic effect. I learned in this review by Ted Kritsonis, that Aputure lights offer a huge range of lighting flexibility.

Get inspired! I did when I read that review article. As you can see at the top of this article, I regularly take product shots of the prizes that will be given away in a contest. And those product shots are okay, but kind of boring—especially when compared with the dynamic product shots that are demonstrated in the review article. If I had one of these lights, I would definitely use it for all of the contest shots that I take in the future.

Deity mics are perfect for all video settings

You can’t have good videos without clear audio. I assign dozens of video projects each month, to many different content creators. Most of those videos turn out great, but once in a while, they are submitted with terrible sound. Usually this happens when the video is shot outdoors, but even some indoor shoots pick up too much ambient noise to be publishable. Justin Morrison explains in his review of Deity mics that they are great for solving a wide range of audio issues. He discusses the features of each mic to make it easy for you to decide which one is best suited to your particular needs.

Inexpensive and indispensable for all photographers and videographers

Aperture lights and Deity mics are accessible for any one with a camera. And since they are not pricey, you don’t have to wait for a birthday or holiday gift to get one. Which one will you choose? If you enter this contest you don’t have to choose: we are giving away five prize packs: each pack with have both lights and both mics that were reviewed. That’s all four of these great products … and all you have to do is enter for you chance to win.
