General Lighting Tips

Without light, you have no image. There is an image but to our eyes, it is black without light. Light is the magic of the image.

For outdoor filming, the sun is a powerful light source. On a sunny day, it can change how your image is recorded, as the light moves and creates hard shadows. On a cloudy day, the position and movement of clouds acts like a diffusion filter, creating softer shadows.
