Hey guys,
So I have a shoot coming up for a laser hair removal place and they have a model who will be the focus of the spot. I was thinking some nice close ups of her legs, soft, warm light with a nice edge light. We are shooting HD so I was wondering if anyone knows of any filters that might help out to acheive the look.
Thanks guys.

Classic Softs would be something to look into, also some pro mists.
I know on the Spirit I've seen 'round here, you can even do a lot of that softening after the fact, though give a gander ad some diffusion filters. I think you'll like the effects.

Classic softs, like chimeras? I was thinking also of maybe using one china and letting everything else fall dark. Thanks for the advice, I'll check out some filters.

These would be on camera filters. My mistake for not making is clearer (thought you meant on camera)
For lights, 216 is pretty standard for a soft light; though you may also look into bouncing your lights into some white-card to soften them up.


Also Muslin, unbleached might be good to punch though, or just silks with some 1/8 or 1/4 CTO to warm it up (assuming you're shooting tungsten balance). Also check out some Lee Straw (forget the # of that gel right now).


Best of luck.

I really like bouncing light off of unbleached muslin. I usually put it on a large frame, but on a spec commercial I was gaffing, we were REALLY low on budget and all we had for bounce was a 4x4 beadboard. The keygrip had some unbleached muslin and attached it to the beadboard. I was really happy with the results. I'm not sure what your budget is, but if you're in a pinch, this is something you could do for a very soft warm light.
