hi all
am planning to use a helium balloon lighting set up for a night exterior scene. would like to know how far can it be used.....what would be the approx distance at which i could use...and what reading will i get for the soft light ambience. cant i emulate the same effect with two 4k arri par shoot through chimera or bounce of white satin cloth of 12*12ft size from a good height. i would use 5218.anamorphic cineovision or hawk lens.
thanks

Depends on what you are shooting on, as for distance, it also matters what type of look you are going for. Ive seen a helium balloon setup, and they are pretty brights. I guess also matters what size balloon you got.
