  1. Hi all we are planning to shoot a low budget flick predominantly on outdoors. I just want to know what are the different approaches to lighting daylight exteriors? Is 4K PAR has enough brightness capacity to light talents on daylight exteriors or do we want lights of higher capacity? How do you match shots as the sunlight drops in intensity? Thanks
  2. Thanks for your replies guys but I'm just curious about one thing...people management and editing skills apart I just want to know talk about lighting...is it possible to light a big set or any situation for that matter with just theoretical knowledge or a course from a film school...is it a skill which can be mastered without being in a film set before...is it something which can be learned by constant practice? I have seen people use fifty lights for a single shot...can this skill be learned without being in that particular situation before?

  4. Hi all This is something which is plaguing me for quite some time...I'm an independent Cinematographer doing small time works...do you need to assist someone before becoming an independent cinematographer...bcoz I had seen some big commercials and features which use tons of lights for a single shot...if someone gets those kind of works how can one shoot them without encountering those kind of situations before without assisting someonr...are is it possible to shoot big projects without assisting someone...and if so what has to be you're knowledge base ? Cheers
  5. Hi guys...I know this is totally amateurish but I want to know how to center/focus lights...I find it really difficult to do it some times and especially if it is a soft box or a kinoflo...is there any techniques you use to center different kinds of lights...thanks
  6. Thanks a lot Miguel :)...and what about the resolution part...can you help me with that
  7. Thanks a lot for your replies...but I don't understand one bit...why do we need to use ND filters to cut down the exposure when you can always lower the light levels by cutting down the aperture...is it for the simple reason for working with a bigger aperture or is there a specific reason for working with a bigger opening? Thanks...and one more thing...what is the use of shooting with higher resolutions when you're going to anyways release ur footage in a lower resolution...what are the advantages of shooting with a higher resolution say 6k...
  8. Thanks a lot buddy...but there is a bit which I cannot understand...how to do you gain a better signal to noise ratio by overexposuring and pulling it in the post...and can you explain a little bit about DR? Thanks
  9. Hi guys...I'm just curious about something...I see a lot of professional cinematographers using 800 iso while shooting be it heavily lit day light exteriors or dimly lit night exteriors...it is the same regardless of the camera system they use be it red cameras or Alexa...is there a specific reason for that? Thanks

  11. thanks guys...I just want to shoot an interior scene with a girl sitting near the window...Her face should be lit with the golden look of the sunset...I know we can shoot it naturally but I just want to know how to create it artificially...thanks for the reply.. :D
