DIY lighting low/no budget
Just wondering what you guys use as far as lights and lighting gear...low/no budget--aka cheap as hell.
I have found some good DIY tips on YouTube for lighting and diffusing, and I picked up a couple of those cheap aluminum light reflector clamps from Lowe's. The brightest bulbs I have (also from Lowe's) are maybe 1500 lumens, I think.
Part 2: any experience here with filming and lighting dark scenes? Like bedrooms and stuff? Any suggestions on how to light a person lying in bed?
Part 2-a: Is it better to film it brighter and darken it in post?
A couple test clips I did looked ok, and still ok when filming. But when I put them in HitFilm they looked REALLY dark.
