Moving from Exterior to Interior
Posted 19 August 2009 - 01:56 PM
I did the 48 Hour Film Fest over the weekend (uploaded shortly) and came across a few shots that dealt with going from exterior to interior and vice versa. I'm wondering what the options are to get the best look (not have anything blown out or too far under exposed).
-Camera was an Panasonic HMC150.
-The biggest shot was a handheld shot where the actor opened a sliding screen door, walked inside then walked towards the front bay window and both her and the camera looked at the front window.
-It was probably the hottest weekend Maine had all year, 85ish every day and maybe 2 clouds in the sky, so it was BRIGHT outside.
-If I were doing this with more time and had it more thought out I'd consider pumping the inside of the house with light, bringing the outdoors exposure and the indoors exposure to a closer level. I would probably expose for the inside and let the outside go by maybe 2ish stops.
-I would also consider some Rosco Scrim on the bay windows (with more time)
So I guess my questions:
-Are my thoughts correct in how you would pull this sort of look off with a good amount of time/equipment?
-What's the best way to do this if things are time sensitive?
Thanks to anyone who can help.

It's really just lighting the interior to match the exterior.
