In this episode of The Wandering DP Podcast we continue our break down of a recent commercial I shot on the RED Dragon paired with Arri Zeiss Super Speeds.
This commercial was unique in that we were limited to house power for our lighting set ups which means we had to choose our angles and locations wisely.
Below are images of the lighting set ups discussed in this podcast along with the images that coincide with the diagrams.
Time of Day: 6:00PM (winter)
Keys to Success:
The hardest part here was going to be matching the color of the fluorescent overheads in the office with the limited resources we had. The fluros have a unique color temperature and a wider variance from unit to unit when compared to a kino flo.
The solution was to disable the fluros that were near the talent and use our kinos with a checkerboard set up. 2 x daylight bulbs, 2 x tungsten bulbs.
When we moved in for the CUs we added blacks to shape the light that was already there.
