Light is an important factor in changing the aesthetic of an image, and using natural light may make your shot appear much more lively than using artificial lighting. Natural illumination is light that happens naturally, such as the sun or the moon. Its principal function is to illuminate a scene using a light-sheet cloth – utilized to capture a one-of-a-kind composition.

Natural light is actually extraordinary in that it can be shaped and adjusted in ways that give your film a realistic, even raw, feel.

What Are The Benefits Of Shooting WIth Natural Light?

There are several advantages to shooting with purely natural light. Natural light contributes to the creation of a cinematic marvel that is also inherently lovely. It provides an aesthetic that studio lighting cannot reproduce-well, it can get close, but nothing beats natural light.


Here are a few important advantages of filming your next production in natural light.


There will be no $5000+ lighting gear, only natural light to fuel your video. Yes, there is scheduling, and you must plan carefully, but the sun is free, and it provides a warm, cinematic light source that may elevate your film from ordinary to extraordinary.

It is consistent, so you know when the sunshine will be accessible and can prepare accordingly to make the greatest use of natural light.

Looks cinematic

It’s impossible to deny that natural light in films makes them appear cinematic. Consider it a beautiful summer evening. The sky is clear and the sun is finally sinking, and it’s a dark amber color – the photo you can design with that as your backdrop is wild.

A sunset is something you should consider if you have a stunning view that has to be portrayed with grace and intensity. Natural light gives a variety of lighting configurations throughout the day, including our personal favorite, “The Magic Hour.” Soft, direct, and warm lighting may help you create an ambiance that your audience will like.

It’s everywhere

You can’t escape it, unless you’re in Iceland, where you may see very little – but for the most part, especially in the summer months, natural light is everywhere!

This implies that, as a filmmaker, you don’t have to restrict yourself to a costly studio; instead, go outside and experiment with shot compositions using just natural light. It will offer bright, airy lighting that will assist you in creating a spectacle of a scenario.

What Is the Difference Between Natural Light and Artificial Light?

Photographers have to contend with different light sources when shooting–natural or artificial. The sun is a free and powerful source of illumination, whereas electric lighting tools offer greater control but come at the cost of time and resources. As a result, consider the following:

Light that is available

A studio can offer reliable light during any hour of the day, allowing photographers to make even the gloomy days bright. With artificial illumination taking over for natural conditions, outdoor evening photography is now a possibility! No matter what time or weather comes our way, an illuminated backdrop will always be ready and waiting.

A wide range of settings

Artificial lighting can create beautiful and expressive portraits, while natural light brings a unique sparkle to entire vistas. Capturing the essence of these two sources of illumination is an art form in itself – something street photographers know only too well.

Controlling the illumination source

Photographers often face a difficult challenge when finding the right light source. Nature can be unpredictable, ruining carefully crafted plans with an overcast day or too much sun for outdoor shoots. Artificial lighting is far more reliable and has become increasingly popular among those who don’t have time to re-shoot if conditions are less than ideal.

Effect Of Advanced Natural Lighting In Hunt For The Wilderpeople

Indoor Photos with Lighted Windows

If you’re filming indoors and the room has several windows, restrict the angle of your shots so that the camera doesn’t face the window. The characters may get overexposed as the sun beams through the camera lens. This does not, however, stop you from using Windows.

Standard reflector kits can be used to direct light from a window to the area where it is most needed. If you can’t direct the light to where you need it, consider moving the rest of the set’s parts to make the light work for you. While this may need a few last-minute tweaks, it might be the difference between a flawless production and one that falls short.

Golden Hour

The golden hour is when the sun is just about to set. The hour or two before sunset is ideal for filmmakers because it gives a gorgeous aesthetic that is readily captured on camera.

The same is true during the period immediately following the sun’s disappearance beyond the horizon. The blue hour is the polar opposite of the golden hour since the sky is still light but the sun is no longer a bother for film production.

How to take the best golden hour photos when you 1

Light that has been naturally filtered and diffused

You can’t always film indoors or one hour before sunset. Consider the numerous ways that light is naturally filtered and diffused to your benefit when filming in the middle of the day or at any time of day. Clouds are an ever-changing natural diffuser.

Filming in the clouds will cast shadows across the landscape. Use the shadows as you see fit to create visual effects that would ordinarily require elaborate lighting settings.

Consider how plants or structures may be used to diffuse the present sunlight. Rather than risking overexposure, employ these aspects to create contrasting footage that highlights the genuine beauty of the place where the film is being filmed.

Understanding the influence of natural light in cinema and how to employ naturally filtered or diffused light to your advantage is both a professional skill set and a possibly cost-saving endeavor that might make your movie seem more sophisticated.

Flags and reflectors

Natural light may be reflected wherever it is required. Even if you don’t have pricey reflectors, you can create one out of an umbrella or cheap foam core boards with mirror backings.

A reflector may lend modest light to your ability on a dimly lit day. Similarly, if the sun is shining strongly, a flag can produce a negative fill to contrast the talent’s face and prevent overexposure or a washed-out image.

Sunlight in Background

Allow sunshine to serve as the backdrop for your production. If it’s sunny outdoors, or even if it’s somewhat cloudy, situating actors such that the sun casts a shadow behind them creates a naturally backlit setting that neatly rims around your talent’s head without shining in their eyes or directly on their face.

Tips On Shooting With Advanced Natural Lighting In Hunt For The Wilderpeople

Tools to Increase Natural Light

Rather than settling for the light you get, be proactive and take control of it! Work your magic with bounce boards, reflectors or diffusion frames to shape that beckoning beam into something truly stunning.

When trying to bring out your subject, you can use expansive window light as a key source and bounce it back on the opposite side of their face for even illumination. Black-wrap or ‘duvytene’ is also great for achieving this result; perfect if needing to shape any overhead fixtures or blacking out extraneous details from windows – so only what matters within each frame shines.

Illuminate your venue and achieve the perfect ambiance! Whether it’s a party or photoshoot, you can bring in bright wattage without breaking the bank. Bring your own higher-watt bulbs to replace lamps and ceiling fittings – just make sure they fit with their fixture counterparts for maximum brightness at an affordable price. Now that’s how you light up any space tastefully yet economically.

A cinematographer friend once taught me that having an intriguing setting is crucial for any film shoot—even the most exquisite lighting techniques won’t be able to redeem a boring location. When it comes to natural light, three components should always be assessed: exposure levels, depth of field and quality of illumination. With such considerations in mind, one can truly craft captivating visuals even with minimal equipment.

When scouting locations, it’s important to consider the level of light you’ll be working with. Bringing a light meter or DSLR is essential for capturing stunning night interiors; thankfully, technological advances are making low-light photography much easier.

Second, does light give space depth? Available light is frequently flat and unattractive. You want to discover an area that is visibly divided by light and shade. At the absolute least, study the light sources in the room and consider how you may shape them using modifiers to create depth in your frame.

Third, are the sources rigid or pliable? Is the color quality good? Windows are often soft, although practical home lights are frequently harsh. Fluorescent lighting can be beneficial since it provides soft, uniform illumination over a greater area, but its color is often poor and can muddy skin tones.

To bring your script to life, pay close attention to the details of what’s available for filming. If you’re faced with an environment that provides harsh and direct lighting, but your screenplay requires something soft and subtle – don’t despair! With a bit of problem-solving, it may be possible to work around this issue by changing up the setting or finding ways to soften the light intensity.


When taking pictures outdoors, the “golden” hours of sunrise and sunset provide a softer light that is infinitely more pleasing than what you will find at noon. However, if shooting indoors using window light as your source of illumination, mid-day can be preferable since it brings with it brighter natural lighting, which lends itself to better exposure.

To get the best quality footage for outdoor shoots, it takes more than just grabbing a camera and walking outside – careful planning is necessary! Seizing the potential of natural light means coordinating your shoot days to coincide with optimal lighting conditions across multiple avenues. The efforts may take time but are sure to pay off in stunning visuals.

When shooting a long scene in the Glow of Dusk, filmmakers must be mindful that even subtle changes in light could make editing between takes difficult. But with extra care and attention to lighting details, capturing such an atmospheric moment can result in stunning visuals!


When the rain comes pouring down, be sure you’re prepared to shoot safely with your camera. But don’t forget – wind can pose even more of a challenge than precipitation! Most cameras come equipped with protective items like waterproof housings and jackets, but it’s important to have an undercover area for changing lenses or drying any wet equipment too. C-stands are invaluable on set but caution must still be taken as strong gusts that strike at just the right angle could cause them topple over dangerously. Ensure all necessary safety precautions are in place so photographing in our unpredictable weather remains fun and safe!

Secure your set with ease and efficiency by enlisting a helpful crew member to provide the weighty solution of “man-bagging”. It’s an invaluable tactic in windy conditions, allowing stands to stay firmly planted while saving valuable time that would otherwise be spent on lugging 200 lbs. of sandbags! Plus, if the weather takes a turn for the worse mid-shoot, you’ll have eyes alert and ready to give warning at any sign of danger.

Use LED Fixtures

Illuminate your shot with ease! LED technology has made it so that you can now get creative and add light to any scene, no matter the space or location. By combining a few battery-powered LEDs into cleverly rigged lamps, powerful panel lights are within reach without having to install anything permanent or cumbersome.

With a little planning and preparation, you can harness the power of natural light to create awe-inspiring cinematic shots. From artful portraits to stirring landscapes, stunning images come alive without ever relying on artificial lights.

To capture the most stunning video possible, plan your shoot around the quality of light at each location. If need be, you can use small modifiers or LED lights to enhance certain shots and achieve a beautiful result without all of that bulky equipment.

Mirrors, Bounce, and Diffusion

We don’t have any control since we can’t control the position of the sun. To better harness, the sun’s power, a range of technologies are available to shape, bounce, and reflect it.

Mirror boards can reflect sunlight to where it is needed. You may also use many mirrors to bounce light throughout the room, coloring them with more warmth or gel. Separate your topic from the background even further.

Crafting an illuminating source for a large group of people calls for more than just the right equipment. A 12×12 bounce requires three grips and several supports, but it’s not impossible with help from two assistants. If you don’t have heavy-duty hardware or crew to spare, then consider using a 6×6 – your smaller team can bring light into any situation.

Make use of practicals

While bright sunshine can often be the perfect source of illumination for exterior shots, what about those alluring night scenes? Practicals should become your go-to when it comes to creating an atmosphere after dark. A bulb strategically placed near a performer – or any other subject within the frame – will provide enough lighting to give off an irresistible glow that’ll keep viewers enthralled from start to finish.

Contrasting the warm and inviting atmosphere of a house with the chill night air outside, you can use cars headlights to beam light through windows for those outdoor scenes. When filming indoors, dimmer switches provide flexibility when adjusting lights; this simple device makes it possible to achieve just that right mood in no time.

Preparation is essential

To make your natural light shot a success, you need to think strategically. Get there early and observe the angle of sunlight throughout different times of day—you may even find that shadows from nearby structures can enhance the quality of your visuals! Then memorize sunrise/sunset timings so when it comes down to shooting time, you’re good-to-go in no time.

Before shooting, it’s essential to make sure that everyone is ready and prepared. A few minutes of preparation can really take your photos up a notch during Magic Hour – an amazing opportunity for beautiful light! Show up on time or even early, get the crew set-up, ensure performers know their lines; then let yourself create something magical with all this preparation behind you.

Have a solid art section

On a low-budget picture, this might be a single person, but make sure someone can play this role. It may be as easy as rearranging some furniture to guarantee that the spill of light from the windows strikes the subjects in certain circumstances. It may become more complicated for larger projects when you may need to develop extra windows or rooms within your venue to deal with the angle of the sunlight.

This really does go hand in hand with choosing the right locations because if you choose the perfect location, the art department may not have to work as hard to ensure you still get the light that you need, or if you’re stuck with a location that just isn’t working, they may be able to save the day.


The essential thing to remember when employing natural light in films is to be adaptable. Natural light is erratic. There might be several hours of bright sunlight followed by days of rain.

The weather might vary quickly depending on where you are filming. Make sure you’re ready to use natural light to your advantage when filming, but also have a backup plan in case natural light doesn’t work out. Nothing is more frustrating than being unprepared for a shoot.

We hope that helps you understand the effect of advanced natural lighting in Hunt for the Wilderpeople and the techniques you may employ to make natural light work for you.
