How to Use the Sun for Soft and Flattering Outdoor Video Lighting

As a filmmaker, you know
how important it is to get your lighting right, but this can only really come
from a good understanding of how light works. Knowing what you want to achieve
is half the challenge!

We’ve looked at using sunlight directly, but what
happens when the light is too strong? Diffusing light can let just enough in to
soften the light and make it useable. In this lesson we’ll cover how and when
to use a diffuser: light when your subject is in the sun or when you need to
soften the sun as a backlight.
