TO GET EVEN LIGHT IN A TIGHT SPACE,
take a photo of your subject with the
light, then remove the light and shoot the
same composition. In post, you can piece
the two together for the desired lighting.
ALWAYS STOW PLASTIC BAGS AND
small clamps in your lighting kit—
whatever elements you encounter, you
can continue your shoot without a hitch.
IF YOU’RE LOOKING TO PLAY WITH
sunset, fire or other colorful settings,
purchase colored gels to balance your
lights. If you want to experiment, try
different colored gels on multiple lights.
IF YOU’RE GETTING BORED OF A
perfect, evenly lit scene, unique
modifiers in front of your light sources
can add texture. I’ve used everything
from textured glass and fabric to leaves
and branches to add interesting shadows
to my work.
