I've got a shoot and the director wants to do some underwater shooting at night, to get the 'beams of light' look shining through the water.

Planning on using the underwater housing for the bolex with a 10mm wide lens. Shooting 7218 500t 16mm. Have a couple 1k redheads (with chimeras, 1 750 fresnel and 4 250 fresnels.

Think I may just get a few ziplock bags for my light meter and will take a few readings under water (more likely than not I'll be WIDE open...)
Letting some of the beams of light over expose if possible.

I'll set the focus based on the distance- you can't see through the viewfinder with the housing.

I'm hoping to not pickup any detail in the walls of the pool, but it should be so dark that it won't be an issue.

Anyone else have any advice?

cheers,


Justin
