How do I darken a well lit room without shutting off lights?

Video Lighting Question: Darkening effect in a well lit room

You don't say why you want to darken the room, as most video producers want more light, not less ;-)

If the room is well lit by natural light, you can use nets, curtains or shades to reduce the light.

If the room is well lit by light bulbs, remove some of them or change the bulbs for a lower wattage. I recommend you get 'Daylight' florescent bulbs to simulate light and looks a lot better on video.

Remember most domestic camcorders do not operate very well in low light and normally produce a grainy video, so always shoot some test video first.

Hope that helps?
