Content Creation on a Budget

Many content creators are drawn to OnlyFans, Patreon and other membership platforms to use their following to make money. Given this, it can be disheartening when your influencer peers are touting expensive cameras and lighting that you can’t afford yet. While you could look at this equipment as an investment, it is very possible to become a successful content creator without spending any money at all. Here are some ways to do content creation on a budget.

Natural Lighting

Lighting is a common concern for people looking to shoot visual content and it can be expensive. The website vlogger gear recommends the Diva Ring Light Nova as a top lighting choice for YouTubers. Unfortunately, its RRP is $229, not exactly cheap. Fortunately, there is a readily available alternative. Natural light takes no time to set up and can create an airy romantic feel. Most importantly, it’s free.

Try shooting outside early in the morning, when the light is particularly beautiful and flattering. This has an added advantage. If you’re on a budget, you probably can’t afford to book a space and have it to yourself to shoot. In the early morning, public spaces such as parks won’t be crowded so you don’t have to worry so much about being interrupted.


As OnlyFans is primarily a visual platform, one of the things we get asked is whether you need an expensive camera to be an OnlyFans creator. The answer is no!

Although many of our creators do shoot on professional cameras, many are making plenty of money using just their smartphones. And the OnlyFans website is optimised for those who choose to do so. For standard uploads, mobile files are accepted. Additionally, live pictures or videos from your phone work well for posting to OnlyFans as a PPV (pay-per-view message).


The Stackla Consumer Content report shows that 90% of consumers find authenticity to be important when deciding which brands they like and support. This goes for influencers too. Today, fans want to connect with real people, complete with flaws and vulnerabilities. 

On OnlyFans we find that many of our most successful creatives aren’t the people with the best cameras but the people with wonderful personalities and something unique to offer.


American director Orson Welles once said, “The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.”

What he meant by this is that, while limitations can be frustrating, they can force you to be creative. There’s an urban legend that author Ernest Hemmingway won a bet by writing this heartrending story consisting of only six words.

For sale: baby shoes. Never worn.

Powerful, right?

Because he was limited to an extremely brief form, Hemmingway did not waste words and came up with this extremely impactful piece of writing.

If you have no limitations, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the choices available. So why not make like Hemmingway and see your limitations as an opportunity to be creative and powerful. Content creation on a budget is not only possible but can lead to better, more unique work.
