Just wondering how to achieve an shadow effect like this with lighting:

(see below/attachments if theyv worked)

Other examples of it, can be seen on the movie Alien and Aliens (its basically where beams/a beam of light is shooting past the subject/object and the subject/object has no light on them)

Sorry if this is too simple, jsut curious to how its done :)

Hi Bryce,

please use the search function of the boards. This question has been asked numerous times. You'll find lots of ideas there.

Cheers, Dave

Keep the light hard to make things nice and contrasty. Just like the older black and white horrors.

Bright, daylight temperature lamps.



I wouldn't mind knowing how xenons compare with HMI's, anyone?
