Where the continuity ends
Posted 11 December 2006 - 10:55 PM
I've been watching films and paying attention to the light continuity . And I have seen a lot of things that I hadn´t seen when I watch that film last time.
And I have seen somethings that I thought that were wrong , but now I saw it at films from good DOP. So I 'm confused. For example : A/ One man sitting in a room with windows at night. In wide shots he hasn´t got a backlight that fills his face with a line, but he has got in close -ups. So Is this right?
B/ Two men, one in front of the other : The direction of the light changes !! I mean : Man "A" shot : the back of the man "B" is lighted . Man "B" shot : now back's man "B" is dark. Is it right ? I saw this at "LOST" tv .
So, where is the limit of the light continuity?
Thank you about your patience

Just remember that light has to be cheated a little from time to time to add mood and pressence to the photography (willful suspension of disbelief doesn't end with actors). Search the forum and find more in depth stuff.
by the way, requirement of this forum is to use your real name in your display. FYI
