Hi,
I have a bunch of Ektachrome 64T film that I wanted to shoot indoors. I have 2 750W spiderlites that I am using and wanted to diffuse these with chimera bank kits. The camera itself only has two settings, indoor or outdoor. If I choose indoor and use these lights with diffusion will my exposure be okay?

Thanks in advance,
Brandi

Funny, I just got this back from Dwayne's photo yesterday. I wanted to see how Ektachrome looked indoors with adequate lighting. In this case I think it's a bit too adequate, or maybe I need to learn to light better. Sort of looks like the blaring add on lights used in the 70's with the home movie set, the type that would cause people to squint when you pointed it at them.

Well I set out not to do anything sophisticated, just very general. I used two lights, a 750w Tungsten with barndoors and a tungsten 300W floodlamp you I bought at a CVS store.

Next time I might try a bit less, or more strategically placed. Hopefully it will give you some idea.

What model camera do you plan on using?

Have you taken any light meter readings? This will tell you how much light there is and weather or not you need any more or less. It is a 64 speed film, which is slow, which means you will need a lot of light. The two lights you describe should be enough, at least for a tighter framed scene.
