Have Lighting Issues When Shooting Home Auditions? Try This!

Do you have lighting issues when shooting home auditions? I did.

My home office was arranged perfectly for my home auditions. My lights were placed perfectly and I never had to move them.

old setup for film and TV home auditions

I used my MAC Book Pro and everything looked and sounded great. Then, I purchased a new MAC Book Pro and things looked really bad.

The built in camera began taking over and I had no control over the changes the camera made.

I tried moving my lights to a different part of the room. Separated the lights more. Bought umbrellas for the lights, but nothing seemed to work.

I purchased an inexpensive app (Iglasses) that allowed me to change the look and that helped. Still, I was not 100% happy with the way my face looked.

Visit a Camera Store.

Going back to the camera store where I bought the equipment was very helpful. I showed the sales person the videos I shot on my MAC. This allowed him to see the placement of the lights and the issues I had.

He did not think that buying new lights was the answer. He thought it was the placement. Having the lights at 45 degree angles, moving the umbrellas as close to the bulb as possible, had a more direct coverage of my face.

I spent hours moving the lights as I watched myself on the monitor. This process is much easier if you have someone else move the lights for you. This allows you to immediately see what is and isn’t working.

The guy at the camera store really helped me solve my lighting issues for my home auditions.

I created a really helpful video that you can order.

You will learn what equipment is needed, where to get everything at a reasonable price and techniques to use that will make your audition stand out.
