I am on a low budget, and I am wondering what equipment is NECESSARY to have or something that I should highly consider getting.
I am a cinematographer, so I love working with lighting and with the camera department.
Because I am a student, most of the jobs I do, I need to own my own equipment. And so far, I haven't had the money to rent out equipment. Most of the stuff I for myself, I do for web based stuff. So, I don't make money off of it.
I currently own:
Canon 17-55 f/2.8 IS
3-point Arri lighting kit (1K, 650w, 300w)
Redrock shoulder mount
3x (16gb) Memory Cards
Basic photo tripod
Im hoping to get some 1 item, or a few items that would cost me up up to around $1,300 CAD.
I want to be making my own short films in the summertime, hopefully something for a film festival. I want to save some money for the production, but also would like to invest in some gear of my own.
