This weekend I was shooting an exterior day. We needed a shot of two people to go from hard sunlight to a soft cloudy look in shot. We shot on a very sunny day, not a cloud in the sky, since we needed hard sunlight for most of the spot. I wanted to try putting up a large 1/4 grid and move it in closer to the subjects to soften the light, but it didn't work. In the end we just cut around it and shot hard light and cut to a soft lit shot. Any ideas how to do this? I've been thinking about how to do this for awhile and have not come up with a feasible idea besides waiting for a cloud or shooting on stage. Thanks all.
