A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: @THEIPHOTOGRAPHR

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAY TWO OF “FAT KID RULES THE WORLD”

I often describe the lighting kits on indie films as “5 lights and 4 c-stands.” It may be an Arri kit or a couple of LEDs or even some work lights from Home Depot, and it might even be 6 lights, but the concept remains–there’s never as many as you’d like…

A YEAR WITHOUT RENT: DAY NINE OF “FAVOR”
