Hey, everyone! I'm wondering how to light an area. Or, more specifically, how to color-balance it. I'm going to be shooting digital, but I'd also like the answers for (tungsten) film just to know in the future. I'm going to be filming in a particular bar (if all goes well—pray for me, please) which I've built the whole thing around. It has lamp lights and ceiling lights which appear to my eye to be incandescent, or else LEDs which look incandescent (I didn't check in the lamps). There are LED (?) panels which I'm told change color (I plan to work that in). And then there's the light from the night-time street. (I don't know what to do about that one.) I was thinking (thanks to a suggestion from Tyler Purcell) of just lighting the scene with some china balls so that I wouldn't have all that stuff to hassle with, but I'm trying to figure out what I should do. I might be able to replace the lamp bulbs, but probably not the ceiling ones, and definitely not the LED panels (obviously). So do I light the whole scene for the LED panels and then use a filter on the lens? What do I do here?
Hey guys! I'm new here, so hello! I am DPing my first feature(horror genre) and due to the fast pace schedule we have, we will only have time and budget for minimal lightning - so I want to rely heavily on natural,practical and modified practical lighting, working with the PD to light the scene- a lot like what Dallas Buyer club did. I know that a lot of the work will be in finding the right locations, but setting that aside, what are some tips you guys have, or innovative ways you guys have lit practically! Currently, I have thought of the possibility of using oil/Gas lambs, multi wick candles, china balls, replacing bulbs in household lambs with higher wattage ones, replacing standard fluorescent tubes with kino tubes Any other ideas or great ways to use these? We are shooting Alexa with cooke s4(f2.8) lenses btw Thanks guys!
