I've just wrapped as DP on a super low budget shoot, the kind where you end up beg, steal and borrowing all of your gear, hence I ended up with a vast array of mismatched lighting gear including everything from DIY lights to household bulb rigs. I was pretty pleased with the lighting in the end although one thing I've noticed is I have a tendency to mess about with lights on set. That is I'll set up a couple of lights fine and then I'll change my mind and swap one fixture for another, change the positions etc (this is before we start doing takes, in what some may consider 'blocking').
So I was wondering, is that bad technique? Using some common sense here and assuming that it is, does anyone have any tips on how to improve on this?
Any advice is much appreciated
