Capturing sparks, smoke etc
Posted 29 April 2009 - 01:46 PM
I was thinking of shooting against a black background but wondering how i can setup the lighting for this type of shot so i can still capture the cigarette. Is it just a case of separating the lighting from the background. Any ideas or tips would be most welcome.

If you're doing it as an element, you want to have the lighting on the cigarette be as similar as possible to the lighting on set. Shoot it against an unlit duvatene (or however you spell it) backdrop.

My only concern with the shooting separate is because we're using Super 16, film grain and whether we can capture at high enough fps without having to boost the lighting and having too much motion blur.
