there is basically no electricity in this location...
how would you go about trying to light this?
is there a battery operated light you would use?
thanks for all suggestions.

If you want how to make it look "good," well that's all based on how you want it to look.
There is also Day For Night, but I never find that believable myself.

Anyway, under a bridge like that could work in DFN as long as you keep things fairly confined so you don't have to see sky or things lit by hard direct sun. A cloudy day or dawn/dusk would work.

There's a few of them around but i'm mostly sure they all need wiring.. I saw them at pepboys a while ago .
That makes sense. I'm pretty sure the cigarette lighter isn't wired for 1kW.

Though I bet if you tried it you could also light a cigarette from the fire it'd start...
Anyway, back to the bridge at night. Without seeing it I would be inclined to recommend day for night since it kind of sounds like a proper generator would be out of the budget. With certain scenes, it's quite easy to pull off. This, being covered and potentially free from lots of background, may be one of them. Seeing sky and lots of lit background are the things that really kill DFN.

i'll try some DFN tests and see how it looks...if bad, i'll probably try to do some sort of campfire set up.
