Plan Outdoor Lighting with Mobile Apps

Plan outdoor lighting with mobile apps

Many variables can affect your lighting conditions when preparing for an outdoor production. For example, the sun and moon constantly move across the sky, changing your shooting environment. Fortunately, there are several mobile apps that help you gather information about your lighting conditions, including sunrise and sunset times. In this week’s episode of DSLR Video Tips, Rich and I will demonstrate how to use mobile apps to help you gauge outdoor lighting conditions.

You’ll learn how to

  • Track the movement of the sun and moon
  • Find sunrise, moonrise, moonset, and sunset times
  • Determine the elevation of the sun in the sky

Check out the sample video above and this week’s complete episode on lynda.com, and we’ll help you get well-lit outdoor shots on your next production.
