Hi everybody,
first of all sorry for my english..
on next monday I'm going to shoot a commercial into the "white void".
I already searched the posts over this forum, and I found a lot of useful tips, but I need some more advices.
We are going to shoot inside a "sphere" white room (I don't know the name in english, sorry), like a continuous cyclorama, in a studio. It's only one shoot, no cuts!
There's a bunch of people looking at a painting, maybe it'll be suspended from the ceiling or fixed to the wall, I still don't know.. I have a dolly movement that start at the end of the room, so a pretty wide shot, and slowly we go toward the painting. As I pass the people, each of them turn toward the camera and go behind me until the last one. This person is giving me his back and is the closer to the painting. They will all be dressed in a grey suit and they'll have a white mask, so they are all the same person.
The idea is to have a white void, so no shadows..
My question is: how can I light this room? I assume in the first part of the shoot, the wider one, I'll see the floor, almost 3 sides of the room and maybe the ceiling too!
Where I can put the light and at the same time have the white blow out to have the void?
thank you!
Matteo
