Any tips on lighting a dark, moody interrogation scene? The set is a large, old industrial basement with concrete walls, pipes, typical basement stuff.
the room and general tone is supposed to be dark, but i don't know how dark to go before the background will just be lost? In my mind I am picturing the typical scene where the subject has a lamp shining in his face - something like this photo: http://mindpowersyst...gationroom6.jpg but i do want to get some of the room because it is pretty creepy looking, which is the intended mood of the scene.
I'm wondering is it as simple as just putting a spot on the subject? If not, How many stops off should the subject be from the background walls and should I meter only off of the subjects face, or compromise between the subject and the background? Should I shoot it a little brighter than intended to get the image on film and then darken it in post?
i'm shooting on vision3 500T, btw. thanks for any ideas.
