The recent simple setup discussion thread got me thinking about how much I like seeing a still and hearing how it was done. I want to start posting some stills of my work and hopefully others will do the same.

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!

Ok, this one is my Hallway of HELL! gave me vertigo panning up and down those stairs, alas, but it's simply a 650 fresnel bouncing off of the white wall camera left up high to "mimic" an overhead light, and the ugly CFL in the background as well. Shot SR3 7219 with a Cooke variable prime.

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....)

A woman looking dominant in a soviet hat? I officially love that movie now.
On a more serious note, yes, I love these threads. I don't have much to contribute, but please keep posting away
