I need some help with lighting Because the last time I went to animate I realized it looked Terrible.
If you have any advice for lighting please help.


Try get 2 very nice lamps that have powerful bulbs. I did that recently and my lighting is soo much better! But also light flicker is one of those things. You know?

Remember to keep it interesting! I like to use cellophane or colored tissue paper to add some color. I have two very bright LED lights that I like to use to get a lot of shadow. It really depends on the mood your trying to get in the scene. For example a fight scene should have characters who are brighter or darker than the background to stand out or a funny scene should have enough light to see everything in frame and brighter colors.

Basically, it can all depend on your lens and shutter speed. You could get away with a 1 second shutter speed for majority of the lenses. You can experiment with the speeds and get it right.

Also, make sure your shadow isn't coming into the shot and that your lights are good.

Hope this helps
