Hi,

 

I'm currently a student and I did my first interview today. I need your opinions and criticism.

 

I used 4 lights:

  • Key and fill were basic fluorescent daylights with softboxes.
  • As a backlight I used tungsten, dedolight, 100w (dimmed down a bit)
  • As a backgroundlight i used little LED with blue filter on it.

 

The room was very very small, so everything was very tightly placed. And i tried to get as shallow DoF as possible.

 

What you guys think? what should I do differently next time? Is the face underexposed?

Nice quality. The only comment I would make on the lighting per se, is that the strong, very warm backlight connotes morning or afternoon direct sunlight. I think it might have enhanced the ambiance overall had some of this also appeared, judiciously, in the background, to complete the implication, so to speak.

Keep up the good work!

Looks good to me - probably I would gel the dedo to match the daylight flourecence depending on the script and time of day.
