Lighting night scene with a torch
Posted 09 January 2009 - 07:07 AM
and also would the beam of light be mono directional therefor suggest to the audience it is actually a torch that has been used? Because the script does not require that.
Many thanks for you help

Just because you are using a torch doesn't mean that you will get odd colours out of, say, a tungsten filament.
Most torches have focus rings on them which means that you can vary between a wide beam and a narrow beam....

My experience has been that flashlights tend to have a fairly low color temperature, so they tend to look a little orange/yellow on tungsten stock. It's not bad though, and you might like that look. You should also consider a test since xenon and LED lights are an option, and they have very different color temperatures than traditional tungsten bulbs.

Whatever you use can be NDed, diffused or colour corrected with a small piece of gel.

you'd be surprised how effective this could be and then you have the oppurtunity to bring the torch closer to the bounce or place the bounce in the best positions to get your effect
