Framegrab and Setup
Posted 27 April 2009 - 02:17 PM
For starters, this is a shot from a video I did this weekend with a couple of rappers. (MC Lyte and David Banner).
Pretty simple shot of the two addressing camera in front of a studio mixing board.
For Key I flew a 4 bank kino with 1/2 cto directly over top of them. Rap videos tend to have a lot of top light and I think it looks cool.
On the floor just under them, I took a second kino with one bulb and some opal to give them a little fill.
The backlight and rim was a 650w fresnel with 1/2 blue on it to give a hair light for her and an edge for him. I let that spill across the mixing board and flagged it to give a little contour.
The studio itself wasn't the prettiest location so I used a lot of negative space to hide the dingy walls.
There is another 300w with 216 to bring out the speaker on the back wall just a touch.
Afterwards I wished I'd gotten a little something to sparkle in their eyes but it's going to be small and on the web so I'm not going to sweat it.
I will start posting some better samples and I hope others will do the same. I love seeing how other people do stuff!

This one, same film, is just re-globing the overheads with 100Ws and a few little 40W bulbs hidden under the bar.
300 W straight down:
Same 300W light coming from the side through 1/8 CTO and 216. He's lit with just the china-ball over his head.
That's all I have for now; as I get more, I'll surely post 'em up, maybe a few screen grabs from this other short I'm about to finish (joys of lens adapters....)

On a more serious note, yes, I love these threads. I don't have much to contribute, but please keep posting away
