I shot this short film a few years ago. It was a night exterior by the beach...there was a smaller body of water branching off from lake Ontario that was playing in the bg...this smaller pond had a very still water surface (which is not good for reflection purposes)...I threw a 1.2 HMI par to the opposite side of the camera, so that the reflection was carefully placed in the sweet spot of the shot...at this point I can see my light's reflection in the water so well that I can tell how many pegs are holding the opal on the barn door!!.... So I asked buch of people on the set to paddle the water , ...it was tricky though as the water would settle down really quick and the take was long...now when I look back at it I wish I had used a bigger and softer source for this...
I'm wondering what are some people's experiences with a night ext scenario in which you see the "moon" reflecting in a body of water (Lake, pond, ocean) in the BG...any help would be appreciated.
love to know what other people have to say about this.
