27 Feb LED lights for Photography?

When I started photography with a hand me down camera from my dad some 30 years ago. It was a time of exploration for me. And one fun experiment was to add some lights into the frame with a touch light. Like a kicker light and I also tried “light painting” with the touch light.
Those were the good old days. Who have tired this? Fast forward to yesterday, I had the opportunity to try our the new Broncolor LED F160 lights. I actually have no intention as it was left in car to be return. Instead of pulling out all the Siros 800L for the shoot; I happily took out the pair of LED which I have never used before. ( it was a loan from the good people of Broncolor Singapore for a video production team) It was my first time tying LED lights for a commercial work. The learning curve was pretty easy. Turn it ON, set my power range, set the color temperature and add a light shaper from Broncolor that I had. Yes, the Broncolor strobes and LED lights share the same light shaper. Brilliant combo. I can’t tell you more about the LED lights as I have no prior information but one could easily find it from Broncolor website. Below are some of the shot taken with the 2 lights set up and also behind the scene photos. So could I used LED lights for photography? I will let the photos do the talking. Will I consider adding it to my set-up?
