How to Create Cheap and Flexible Outdoor Video Lighting

Read Time: 1 min

As a filmmaker, you know how important it is to get your lighting right. Knowing what you want to achieve is half the battle. Adding light to your subject lets you balance exposure with your background—and keep everything well exposed.

This lesson brings in some of the elements previous lessons together to create an achievable lighting setup: backlight, fill light and a key light. Although this setup could look daunting, it just takes practice until it becomes second nature.
