Basics of Lighting - What You Need To Know Before Buying

November 13, 2017

 

Dedicated to new and beginning video creators and filmmakers on knowing what to spend your money on when it comes to lighting. This one was a beast, so I hope it helps you out. Links, time markers and a ton more below. ▼

 

NOTE: Please excuse the mistake at 10:55 where I refer to CRI as Color Temperature Index. It stands for Color Rendering index.

Many thanks to Aputure for some if the products used sent to me for review purposes. They do not sponsor me, pay me, or have any input to the opinions I share in this video. In other words, if you say I recommend them because they gave me some equipment, I'll punch you in your internet face.
