How to Light with Christmas Lights for DSLR’S

Tim Cash Oregon Filmmaker here. Lets talk lighting for DSLR’s! Lighting to me is the funnest and one of the most challenging parts of filmmaking. Its everything! Here’s something cool you can do for only $12. Its always fun to play tricks on the eyes and one of the best ways especially with the amazing shallow depth of feild we can get with the dslr’s is using christmas lights. Yes christmas lights! Here’s the deal; if you just shot christmas lights in focus yeah that would be weird?! but if you always shot them out of focus and at different distances with a package that keeps them symetrical well then…now your talking! You can create what looks like a big budget affect with not much work at all. Hope you enjoy the video!
