I made some of these and am VERY happy with the results.
Before you go out and spend hundreds of dollars on a cheap light kit online or through a catalog, consider the option of making your own portable, durable and ultimately flexible low-voltage lighting kits. You’ll not only have more control over how much light you want to put on your background and your subject, but also how much you want to spend!
Flexibility, Portability & Savings!
These easy-to-make lights utilize standard craft materials you can get from art supply and hardware stores. Foamcore, ducts tape, hot glue, velcro, bulb sockets, lamp cord, plastic diffuser and some mounting hardware and you’ll be up and running with a durable, portable lighting system that will light your portable green screen and your subject that you will be proud of and save you money!
