Today I have a fun tutorial for you that will show you some quick and easy cinematography techniques. In the video I talk about lighting, camera composition and also set dressing plus how to enhance the shot using some very quick VFX.
Here is the video tutorial
As you can see, I only use 1 practical light as the key light. It happens to be an oil lamp but in your case you can use a candle, torch maybe even a flashlight. Other than that I use 2 lights to show a bit of the environment plus to help separate the actress from the background. Both of those lights happen to be from Aperture but you can use any light really. If you do want to see all the gear I used in this example then follow the links below. One really great addition to any filmmaker these days is to have a solar generator. Especially the larger one I own which is the Inergy Apex. This thing is a monster and will power your lights for hours. I also provide a link to where you can get it plus a 10% discount code.
