Our Recommended Lighting Equipment

So let's recommend a lighting kit. If you're first starting out, it's easier just to go buy very cheap homemade lights. You can go to Home Depot or you can use paper lanterns. You may find it somewhere like Ikea. We're going to talk more about this in the lighting section in this course. Another great way to use cheap home lighting is just grabbing the lights around your house. You may have some nice lights around your bed um in your living room that you can kind of move up close to you or use their ambient light to light your subjects. Another great technique that I use all the time is just putting your subject or yourself or whoever you're shooting next to a window. There's nothing better than the free light coming from the sun, although you are going to be sort of slave to the weather. However soft lighting is usually nicer and if you have harsh lighting coming through a window, you can always use it as a backlight. You'll just be racing the sun for mid tier lighting. You can go thr...

ee different ways. You can rent a lighting kit for your shoot. You can find a cheap new kit online somewhere or you can buy a pro used kit online somewhere. So if you're going more in a pro level, I would suggest going into the Led World, we use lights made by light gear and they're LED lights. Led lights are great because they don't put off a lot of heat, they draw very little power um they're dimmable and you can buy color them, which means you can have them be tungsten light or you can have them be daylight to match the sun lighting. Really depends on different projects and different locations. You can really figure out what light you need based on the project that you're shooting. So it's kind of hard to really invest in one light that will encompass your entire project unless you're doing something specific all the time. You can really get away with natural light if you're shooting outdoors a lot and if you have a home office setup, it's really easy to just set up lights and leave them year round, whether it be a china ball or a home depot light. We'll list out some of our recommendations in the attached pdf.
