Lighting B&W Shower Scene?
Posted 02 April 2011 - 11:12 PM
Here are my questions:
1.) How do I get the water to be more contrasty so that I can actually see it? I know back lighting (right?) but it's a tight old apartment shower.
2.) Whats the best way to keep the camera from getting wet?
3.) Will the steam hurt the 5D?
4.) The scene is suppose to be very sweet so I'm trying to figure out the best way to actually shoot it. I mean... do you show the curtain? That seems to be too voyeuristic/Psycho-esque... Wide angle from inside seems to distort too much though...
I know this is a lot and I'll run some more tests. 1 2 & 3 are what I really need to know.

Camera protection: Well, you should stay at least a couple feet from the shower and possibly put some kind of clear garbage back and cut a hole for the lens to pop through for safety measures.
Please make sure that you have someone experienced on set so that no one is going to get hurt.

Also look at how they got around the curtain issue. A simple cut.
