I was wondering what equipment I should buy or rent for people paying for my services? For example if I am shooting a commercial for a mural being made do I rent the necessary equipment so I can get reimbursed? Or should I buy a camera and rent the lenses that is necessary for the shoot? I really like the Arri Alexa right now.
Also what equipment I should have on me at all times if I just filming a shoot with me and one other person? Should I have the best boy kit on me like having gaffer tape? Here is a list of things I think I should buy.
CTB Gels- The most common uses are to convert the color temperature of tungsten light toward daylight. Correcting tungsten to match daylight.
CTO Gels- Match the color of the Tungsten Lights to the Color of the Environment(Daylight) Correcting daylight to match tungsten.
Natural Density Gels- Cutting Light Levels Without Diffusing The Light or changing the light tempature. To Fight Over Exposure without sacrificing light.
Diffusion (Frost) Gels- Diffusion Gel is available in various densities from nearly clear to a dense milky white that diffuses the light without changing the color temperature. There is a loss of output as the density (thickness) increases. Adding diffusion makes the light softer as it makes the size of the light source larger. Diffusion= softening light.
