You could make artificial light, but the presets I’ve offered don’t look as poppin’, unfortch. (Although I will say, that new iphone 12 pro has hellllla good night mode).
Speaking of iPhone, you can definitely get away with using JUST your smart phone camera these days. Although, if you can shoot in raw, that’s typically best practice for custom Lightroom editing beyond any presets.
