      Hi, I’m a film student just coming up to shooting my first of two final year films. There is a scene outdoors at night in a park and was wondering if there were any techniques regularly used or advice for when trying to light for a night exterior? Thanks

        Like for any scene you need to consider what you want it to look like and what would motivate the light. A park could have existing lamps on posts or you may want to add some. You may want the scene to play in ‘moonlight’, in which case you may be turning light off rather than adding them.
