  • Photography Lighting Rental

    Great film, photography and videography require great lighting, and the way your studio photos turn out all depends on the setup of your lighting. The challenge, of course, is that lighting is never “just right” when shooting indoors or outdoors. Plus, owning all the equipment you might need can come with a high cost and requires you have somewhere to store it all.

    BorrowLenses has numerous photography lighting rental options for you to play with and discover your unique photo style, while eliminates these problems. You have access to all the equipment you might need – from simple flash units to backdrops to continuous lighting and more – at an affordable price that makes taking high-quality photo and video possible.

    200+ Pieces of Lighting Equipment for Every Occasion and Need

    Do you need a specific brand or lighting equipment type? With more than two dozen different brands and more than 200 pieces of lighting equipment for rent, we’re confident you’ll find what you need. A few lighting equipment rentals you can try include:


    Backlight studio lighting places light directly behind the model and uses a reflector or additional lighting to cast light on the model's face. By lighting up the back of the head, backlighting adds depth and detail. An octabox is a great option for backlighting.


    Place two softboxes slightly in front of your model, equally spaced apart and facing toward your subject. Make sure the settings for the softboxes are exactly the same. This lighting choice is perfect to create an even shot that snatches up every detail. To reflect more light onto the face, you can also have a reflector placed somewhere below the model's face but out of camera sight, such as on his or her lap.


    Set up a large reflector off to the side of your model. Stage a Fresnel light or similar lighting at a 45-degree angle to your model until you can see a triangle of light on his or her face. This lighting option is perfect for artistic photos, hence the name.


    Positioning two flashes at an angle and behind the model by several feet, rim studio lighting casts deep definition. For more dramatic photos, make sure the flashes are aimed toward the camera. You might need to take some practice shots to get the perfect photo, and don't forget about having an assistant with a reflector handy.

    The setup options for your photography lighting rental are nearly endless. In addition to lighting equipment units from Canon, Manfrotto, and Aputure, BorrowLenses also offers a wide range of equipment from Profoto, Nikon, LitePanels, Paul C Bluff, Westcott and more.
