The Wandering DP Podcast

This week on the podcast we take a look at set lighting and the challenges that come with it.

We breakdown a recent commercial I shot and talk why the set looks the way it does and how early conversations with the director and production designer shaped the look.

    Just wondering what FC level this scene was lit at.

    That slash of light by missing the grid is a great insight!
    This looks amazing for a 1 light setup.
    Cheers Patrick!
