I’m working on a music video by a great song writer and talented musician named Danny Petronie. This isn’t a documentary and of course I don’t believe in artificial lighting of documentaries anyway. But when I saw this picture below I thought it was worth sharing and explaining how I did my DIY lighting for a fireside scene. It was quite simple, cheap and worked great. I used three flood lights on the ground (2-yellow and 1 red) and an LED light taped to a ladder behind Danny to give a moon effect as back lighting. The LED light was a Ryobi 18-Volt flashlight Model# P705. It cost $20 for the LED and $30 for the three flood lights. A lot cheaper then a lighting director. I should add that after this photo was taken I had to move the floods around a little to soften the shadow from the guitar. However, this photo does illustrate the simplicity of lighting unusual scenes.
