Hello. I'm DP and working with crew over 1 year we making short films but im confused, last time my film Director is meddling in Lighting, he changing himself Lighting, idk why he doing it, im sure i know how to set lighting better then him, but idk what to do... is it normal ? or may i prohibit him to do it ? : ) sorry for my bad English... also i don't want to tell him that hes not good at lighting lol

Well I think the director has the final say in what ever the film looks like, tipically they hire DP's they already know and know they can light, but maybe you are right maybe he will be ruining your shots, I dont know

I removed the "Paid Job" addendum from your post, as that is supposed to indicate you are offering a job.

To answer (what I think is) your question: if he is the director, he may do as he pleases. If you believe him to be sabotaging your work, you can always quit the production.
