About This Class

This class is designed for someone who would like to take their photo/video more seriously without breaking the bank.  Maybe you have a vlog and you wish you didn't have to hire someone else to shoot it.  Maybe you just wrote your first short film and aren't sure how you're going to film it. Maybe you're looking to photograph some clean portraits.

examples

Hi, my name is Marshall Rimmer and I'm a cinematographer who has learned the craft through working on tiny sets with bare-bones equipment and no budget.  I'm here to teach you how to squeeze the most production value out of a shoestring budget.

Watch a sample of my cinematography here.

Photo/Video Lighting on a Shoestring Budget will not only show you which equipment to purchase, but it will provide you with 14 different professional looks, complete with examples and schematics for how to acheive each look.

This class is only $16! The $65 USD refers to equipment costs. Necessary purchases will be made at Ikea, Home Depot, and Guitar Center (or other similar stores).

Sample

In this course, students will:

  • Create a photo/video studio for under $65
  • Gain access to over a dozen informative PDFs explaining how to acheive professional looks
  • Learn lighting theory
