Hi everyone. I'm looking for advice on lighting interviews with a tiny crew (2-3 people) out at sea on a small 30-40ft boats. I'm frequently booked on these gigs but I find that 99% of the time I never dig the look of the interviews. It's always a matter of finding what looks the least bad. For most EXTs (on land) I'll backlight and try to shoot into a BG that's in the shadows...but of course on a boat there aren't any shadowed BG's, except maybe a tiny part of the deck. Most times we end up settling for front lighting the subject and holding a foldable silk to diffuse the light a bit,
I am visualising a concept for a short film, but I would like to have an underwater scene where I can actually see at least half the body of a person in the water, shooting from below. I have learnt that the fish tank methods are good enough for close ups. If I need half the body to be shot underwater, I will need a very huge tank to contain the actor. I am wondering if there could be more ways to do this provided that I could not really go underwater in the ocean or a pool. Thank you for incoming suggestions.
Hi there everyone, Greetings! Looking for inputs from senior and experienced Cinematographers as to how best to water proof a camera and the lens. The camera in question is an SR3 to be used for prolonged use at sea, but certainly not underwater. Is a splash bag good enough? how do you cover the lens front element from salt? regards
