- Natural light is one of the best options when it comes to lighting a film, irrespective of budget. So before buying lighting, always check options of how you can use natural lights optimally.
- Once you have decided on how you can use natural lights to your advantage, get your hands on a five-in-one diffuser/reflector to make the most of this light.
- Work lamps make for inexpensive but effective lights. You can find some at the hardware store.
- If you think your film might need a lighting kit, it is a better idea to hire one instead of buying one. This saves you money and gets the work done too.
- Use LED lights instead of tungsten ones as they are safer and also run on battery.
