Is it just large soft source all around? i.e, hmi's blasting through white diffusion placed on all the windows and some practical flourecent lights from above?



Thanks, Ollie.

Hi Olliehm,

I would agree with your guess: HMI's through diffusion on windows, and fluorescents as overhead (slightly backlit overhead). That's for the prelight. Oh, and some negative fill on the downstage side of his face.

If you look at the shadows on his face, the keylight is very hard, like a Fresnel or a par. Maybe it is one of the big HMI's outside, or maybe it's a Jokerbug with the beamer a few feet away, but anyway, it's direct light, and the eye is tricked into thinking that it is soft light because the contrast between the key and fill is low.
So the trick to achieve this look would be a very hard and specular key, but with an intensity just above the fill light level so it blends seamlessly, keeping a low contrast ratio.
