    I didn't think intensity had anything to do with controlling contrast, just exposure.
    Using blue and green does. Doesn't it?

    Anyway back to the OP.

    There are quite a few LED ring lights available but I didn't see anything with power enough to use at a distance of more than a foot or three.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.

    There are plenty of LED Hot Lights in B&H's video department. The problem is still size and power required for comparable output to a good strobe, though you do get the advantage of composing and metering with your lights.

    Also, I hadn't scoped these in a few months, but it actually looks like GISTEQ has LED panels that'll slip into a hot shoe on a camera that have adjustable color balance... There's one that's not too massive that's got 18w of output... so about equivalent to a 100w Halogen. That's a big increase over the LED ringlights and such, but for the same money, you can get much more power in a smaller size with traditional flashes, and probably get more usage before killing the batteries vs. the LED hot lights.
    New-ish convert to film.
    Pentax MX for 35mm
    Bronica ETRS for 645
