Edwardian Era Lighting
Nelson JJ Flores posted a topic in LightingHi everyone, So long story short, I'll be shooting an Edwardian era film this coming March. I've been studying the era, and what it consisted of in terms of lighting, looks, color, etc. I was wondering if anyone else has shot a period piece that was similar, and what kind of techniques they used to fit the style of the the era. From I found out so far, a lot of the photos had overhead chandeliers and a lot of floor, and wall lamps. (candle light based) From what I can think of maybe is a large soft source from above, and maybe smaller units to back light or edge characters for night And for day just have large sourced windows to provide the majority of my lighting. But I would like to hear other people's approach and ways that they tackled it. Thanks!, JJ
Star wipes, cube spins & other "fancy" transitions
Richard Swearinger posted a topic in EditingDoes anyone use the many animated transitions that come included with editing software in their moneymaking work? There are dozens of explosions, confetti bursts, peels, wipes, smears, shears, rolls, and flips in my system and I can buy hundreds more online if I want. But I'm pretty much a dissolve guy with the very occasional dip to white or black. Am I just boring and missing opportunities to make my work better? Are any of these transitions useful in ways that I'm not thinking of for enhancing serious documentary or narrative work?
Filming Babies !!!
kris brady posted a topic in Lightinghey guys, A relitively simple one, I would just like to double check with you all in case theres something im missing. I have a shoot coming up where we are going to have a series of babies 'talk' to camera. Plan is a white cyc setup up with a super soft source bounced above and over camera and then fill from pretty much all sides and a bit from below. Ill shoot on the alexa mini with cooke glass wide open. any thoughts beyond the above? or any experiences people want to share? thanks! kris
