Ok all you lighting guru's. I have a question. We did a shoot awhile back and need to set up the same gear that we used. Can anyone tell me what exact gear they may have used in these photos? Also below is the list that the past lighting crew brought with them. They didnt use everything on the list, so we are trying to find out what to remove fromt he list. Any help would be great!

It's really tough to figure this one out because the photos are pretty blurry. The last picture looks like a 1K baby solar spot with some type of CTB on it. They all could be 1Ks, but I'm not sure. It looks like the lights are on baby stands. You have some sort of diffusion, looks like 216 or 250, hanging from a C-stand. You might want to consider renting some 4x4 empty frames and snot tape to attach the gel rather than hanging it loose. the frame makes it easier to control. I can't tell you what to remove because the pictures are not clear enough, and even if they were, there could be stuff in play that I am not seeing. Are you the cinematographer of this project, or the gaffer, key grip? If not, I would suggest talking to these people.

Please provide some more information so I know what this project is. Is it a student project? What is your role? Why are you trying to recreate a lighting setup verbatim? Are you doing reshoots? What look are trying to achieve look wise? Who did the previous lighting setup? Give as much info as possible. The more info the better.

One more thing. Your screenname is supposed to be your first name, a space, and then your Last name. So if your full name is Ry Tiger, then go to "my controls" and change it to "Ry Tiger" instead of ryTiger, otherwise it can be confusing. This is also a requirement of the forum

What's the color of the can in the bottom pic? It kinda looks like Mole Richardson's red. If so, those things are floating around the market in great plentitudes.

Mr. Tiger,

If you have a clip or a still(s) from the scene you need to recreate, perhaps we can take a stab at it. Just looking at the lights themselves is not as revealing as seeing that actual scene.
