Shooting an illuminated balloon in the dark
Posted 04 September 2008 - 12:05 PM
Also its a night shoot and all the lights in the room will probably be off so we're looking at using moonlight, or rather creating moonlight coming in through the windows.
Any thoughts on all of this? Tips suggestions, anything...?

For moon light; throw some diffusion and some CTB in front of a light for the "moon" and keep it from being brighter than the brightest of the balloon, maybe 1 stop under, maybe more, it's a matter of personal preference at that point.
I mean, how bright are these lights? How do you want these colors to appear? Vibrant and saturated, muted and pastel etc.

The balloon showed up by itself in test footage. There is a small bulb that goes inside the balloon that lights it up.
The rest of the room we were able to use full blue and spot a light on the kid so his face showed up. The CTB worked also but its kind of a fantasy so we used just the blue.
It was sort of a balloon within a balloon also but the balloon still shows up by itself on the test footage.
