Default DIY LED Lighting Under $25 O.O

Found a cool DIY (Do IT Yourself) on LED Lighting that looks promising. My set of LEDs is In Da MAil.

There is a ton of things Joey has done which work surprisingly well for DIY projects at home.

I think you will be happy with the DIY lighting and it is so super simple to do and use.

I wouldn't call him the king , That is just a self proclaimed title 3/4's of the stuff he has done he ripped off of other people. All he does is make videos of copied DIY work.

plus those LED's wouldn't have the proper PAR and kalvins

Got to see Joey at the Capital Cichlid Association 'BFD' Big Fish Deal 3 day convention outside Washington DC. He is a nice and thoughtful person. Sure a lot of this has been done before, but a lot are better ideas on the new things - and even you admit to at least 1/4 new content.

Also his production is better and clear - as opposed to bad lighting and bouncing cameras.

I appreciate what he does - he takes a lot of time and thought into his production to make things clearer than most - and brings it all to one channel for convenience...

Isn't that what most cable channels have done for the last 30 years as they come out? Except, you'd be happy if they had that much new content! LOL

... and if you want a better PAR value, you could buy better LED's somewhere else, but still use the same idea.
