How to Set Up Video Lighting in a Small Space

By Anthony Thurston on August 21st 2013

You don’t need to have an expensive lighting setup nor a large studio space to produce your own video podcast. It can be done from the comfort of your own front room with only window light and some cheap LED panels.

Caleb Pike from DSLR Video Shooter just released this great behind the scenes look at the setup that he uses for his video. The crazy thing is that I never would have guessed that he shoots his videos in his front room, not only that but that his setup is so simple. It is actually pretty inspiring.

I have always sort of shyed away from doing a lot of indoor/studio video work for lack of “good” lighting and what I thought was a large enough space, but after seeing where Caleb shoots his videos and the lighting that he is using I am inspired to give it a go myself. Check out the video below and see for yourself, you really can get great video in the smallest places and with the simplest lighting setups.
