  • Went over the edge... Central Europe

Posted 13 July 2012 - 11:29 AM

I was thinking of setting up colored bottles and stuff to block out the light, make it interesting.


I kind of like this idea but suspect it would be hard to get the bottles to block all the light from the window, but I do like the idea of lots of different colours streaming in. Not sure how well it would work in practice. If you were to go for weird I guess you could even block the window with coloured paper to create a stained glass effect like children do in schools IFSWIM? That would block out the light but also provide something a bit more interesting going on maybe?

love

Freya

Firstly we can't get outside, as we're on the 4th floor.


I think Adam had in mind that if you could open the window, you could hang a flo on the other side of it! :)

Hey, not sure if this report is already outdated and you already went through with the shoot . . . but here's my two cents anyway.

I agree with the person who suggested the Kino Flos. I'd use a couple of Diva Lite 400s. You can dim them and adjust as you want with the barndoors and diffuser and they generally come with a couple of gels and floozier.

I'm in LA and I rent from a store that's at the Lot on Formosa and Sta. Monica Blvd, they've got the lowest rates in town and great customer service

good luck with the shoot!
