  4. I was at a trade show where someone was showing me a dedo light and made the mistake of showing me the projector attachment. I was very excited by the gobos and spent ages with the few they have coming up with new trippy effects. I definitely decided I wanted one of these but then later when I looked into it the cost was very scary. Hundreds and hundreds of pounds for the lighting fixture and then the projector attachement too. I started looking around at alternatives in the theatrical world and that was when I stumbled across the Ikea Isbrytare lights and managed to snag 5 at £7.50 each! So I am now very happy! Obviously these aren't proper lighting fixtures being more like mutated birdie lights and while I am waiting for them to get here I'm also aware that they are only 50W MR16 lights so aren't going to be super powerful. I'm hoping to modify size M gobos to work with them. So I'm wondering if anyone has any gobo tips or has used gobos a fair bit. I realise they are often more of a theatrical thing but I'd love to hear anything anyone has to say about them. Freya
  5. Hi I'm just on my way out of uni so pretty new to cinematography and am shooting a night time scene between two people lit by candle light. I will be shooting on a canon DSLR and only really have a few simple dedo lights available to light the scene. Anyone got any advice on how to get enough light that I wont have to crank the ISO too high? Cheers.
  6. Hi Guys. I'm new to this forum. I'm struggling to light a scene and wondered if you have any suggestions. I have two solutions but neither one seems to be working. Here is the layout of the rooms and action taking place. So the main character walks into a room. Initially the camera sees a darkened room then as the door opens the light sweeps in and spills across the bed revealing the second actor in the bed. He moves towards the chair and sits down before switching on a bedside lamp. Solution 1. Before the door is opened it would be nice to see some of the room in darkness so I put up a soft light at the window (assume shooting at night). Next I placed a nice hard dedo-light so the shadow boundaries are nice and crisp - as the door opens we get a nice spill of light across the bed and the spill goes right across the second characters face - it looks fairly good. The boundary of spill is shown by the grey line. However, as the main actor walks passed the door he ends up being overexposed. Given the room available it isn't really feasible to move the dedo back and scrim it. Solution 2: So this solves the issue of the character being overexposed as he walks past the camera. However the spill in the shot is significantly reduced so that when the door is opened the shadow of the edge of the door only goes across the first part of the bed and doesn't reveal the second characters face. Any suggestions how I could light this? Best Stephen
