Over the last 2 days i have been shooting a short for film school. I have not had much experiance in the whole DP aspect of things and this was my first shoot as the DP.
The shot we were doing here was a hand held shot following two characters as they walked over to the bathroom cubicle.
What i tried to achieve was a sort of romantic atmosphere outside yet a cold, hard atmosphere in the cubicle (with the blue light). The scene takes place in a club.
For the lights i used a 600w fresnel with a magneta gel bounced off a green wall. A 1k fresnel with a magneta gel bounced off a white ceiling. And a 1k fresnel bounced off the ceiling.
I also had trouble with ambience (there wasnt enough) so any advice on how to increase ambience but keep harsh lighting like this would be great. i was shooting at 30p on an Xl2.
