Went for an interesting look here. We wanted the black backdrop to give the most pop with some colorful, playful animated texts. We wanted a mix between high-key energetic, with low-key cinematic feel. We gave a splash of edge on the hair and a slight fall off on the face, but let the light wrap a good amount around the talent's face.
Angelee Car Fundraiser
The look here is accentutated with an overhead LED Panel, skirted off to control spill, it creates the hard edge light on the hair as well as creating a bit of a lens flare. The panel is set to daylight, but reads blue from adjusting in camera white balance to 4500k. Black flags for cut and bounces for fill round out the look we were going for. Shot with C100 with Sigma 18-35, Senneisers G3s, graded in Davinci, cut in FCPX.
Creating a Natural Interior Look
Screengrab from a private project for my friends. We tried to take a minimalist approach to accentuate the natural light coming from the windows. We didn't have much time or budget to control or modify the window light (overexposed back window). We hid two LED panels behind the back wall to bring in a slight edge to our talents as well as the couch (motivated by the back window). We used good ol' cinefoil to direct the beam and spill of the LED. Key light was a large octobox powered by an LED fresnel. Lighting ratios would have been slightly better if we had a more powerful key source, but the 60W fresnel was all we had. A little bit of negative fill was added to shape the faces. In hindsight, I could have removed the thermostat and thermometer in post.
