XPOSURE- New Online Magazine from LEE Filters!

LEE Filters is proud to announce the release of the FIRST ISSUE of our Online Photographic Magazine, Xposure. Filled with stunning photographs, Xposure aims to provide guidance and tips to using photographic filters, while sharing intriguing insight from some of the top landscape photographers around the world. 

Some highlights from our first issue:

  • Influential photographer Colin Prior in the isolated and epic landscape of the Karakoram.
  • Craig Roberts goes urban and gets inspired.
  • Anatomy of a Landscape - three top photographers take apart their shots.
  • Composition Masterclass with Jonathan Chritchley.
  • And plenty more to whet your photographic appetite.

You can view the magazine online, or download the PDF version HERE

We’re excited to share this new venture with you. We hope you enjoy it! 

We love seeing the different ways people use our lighting filters. One recent example of this was an installation by Connor Robertson from Installate Design. 

Connor’ background in events and structural/civil engineering enabled him to create this geodesic skeleton structure made of 40 individual hollow perspex frames. Each panel is covered in a different coloured gel from LEE Filters. The panels in the structure can easily be replaced with any lightweight material to create infinite bespoke ideas from a dj booth to pop-up promo tent.

Connor chose LEE because of the vast range of colours available. He loved the way the quality of the light reinforced the visual importance of the design and that the vibrant colours he chose gave an impression of clean precision and beauty.

A Behind the Scenes Look!

A big thank you to Jonathan for a really enjoyable couple of days. The new video should be up on the Lee Filters website in a few weeks!

LEE Filters has launched an exciting new function to our website!

Introducing Mood Boards! Mood boards, created with the help of renowned Lighting Designers, were created to spark ideas and possible colour palettes when designing. As always the overall effect of these colours isn’t predetermined and can be transformed in a myriad ways - placement of light source, the other colours being used, intensity, colours of scenery and costumes, and more. We offer these palettes as simply a nudge in the right direction.
