helo everyone . i'm tato student of lodz film school in poland . 1 year of cinematoghraphy.
I'm shooting my 1 year film . which should be approx. 4 to 5 minutes . film stock is b&w 250 asa . kodak 5222.
I want to shoot a little film about angels . which appear in the industrial city of Lodz .
My main goal is to have two angel characters over exposed when every thing els will be normally exposed
I made some stills with a digital camera.I panted actor in white and lighted him with two lamps from two sides. After a little contrast corrections I got something like this:
I hav several Idias how to get this effect .
1 to paint actors skin in green color . hair, eyelashes end lips in purple. In the end I will use a green filter durin shooting.
2 shoot normally and use forcing. but then everything will be very contrasty
3 print it to the tone positive . then again everything will be very contrasty.
4 or just to paint him in white as I did in the picture above.
on clos ups it would not be problem to light him and get this effect of overexposure. main problem is wide shots and exteriors .
i would like to shoot him in e wide shot walking on empty street . haw do i get this effect here?
next week I'm going to make tests with film stock and all your suggestions will be very helpful.
thank you very much for attention.
