And Then There Was Light

Lighting equipment is probably the second most important element in video production (the first being the camera, of course). The facilities to power lighting equipment may not be available in most outdoor areas, so we have to work with what we have: natural light. Fortunately, we have the necessary equipment that makes the most of natural lighting without using a single volt of electricity.

Use of natural light and a reflector.

Our go-to equipment for filming outdoors is using a reflector. A reflector is a piece of reflective material that comes in different colours, shapes and sizes. Natural light bounces off the reflector and onto the subject, creating the perfect shot. Reflectors can be used indoors too; for diffusing artificial light – including strobe lights and the flash of the camera.  They can be folded into a compact size that can be carried from place to place with ease.

Reflectors add a vast amount of quality to videos and photographs. They make the most of natural lighting without using a single volt of electricity
