Diffuser


Lighting can be harsh when you shoot, especially when you film midday. At noon, the sun is right above and casts very strong shadows. A reflector comes in handy because it allows you to diffuse the harsh rays, giving you even lighting. You can check out some reflectors here. If you’re on a budget, a cool little tip is to use wax paper or a white sheet to diffuse the light.

Light Meter

It’s always important to try to get the best lighting possible when you shoot. If you don’t have money to buy a fancy light meter, you can use your hand! Click here to see how.

Audio Sync

Here is a cool tip on how to record great sound even if you don't have a microphone input in your camera.
