So I shot this short with my friend in a few hours, this is purely practice for us so we used non licensed music. This is a rough cut so I didn't perfect any of the audio. This is the beginning of my journey to learn how to light film better. I'm pretty much a noob, so I want to hear your opinions on how I could improve this, what looks bad, etc.
This was shot on a Samsung camera with the sigma 18-35 1.8. I used 2 Aputure 120Ds for the shoot, along with some gels.
Something I'm not sure about is how people shoot dark scenes. On the camera's meter, it'll show its' 1-3 stops below the center. Is this how other DPs record in, or do they shoot at the center and darken in post?
