Hello fellow cinematographers!
So I'm doing cinematography for an upcoming project in which the director wants to shoot at the beach. Not having the ability to have any extra lights on set (unfortunetly), and that she wants to shoot on a cloudy day, how to I make the most out of lighting (given that i will have reflectors). We took a day to go to the beach and try some shots out. By the end I have a better idea of what the situation will be like, but did not keep in mind that we were only carrying 10-20lbs of equipment and I was exhausted after an hour (we were climbing up dunes and stuff). What are some tips that you would recommend for shooting at this location?
I will be shooting with a Canon 5D Mark ii. Lenses will include: 17-40 L-series f/4, 35mm f/2, and 50mm f/1.8
What other problems will I come up against do you think?
