Hi all! I'm sitting here watching the 1964 classic Scorpio Rising and I'm racking my brain thinking about what lights Kenneth Anger used and where he set them up. It all looks incredibly simple like a documentary, yet each shot has a great mixture of light and dark. I've read somewhere before he used tungsten of a sort but I can't be certain. From what I can see it appears to be hard open faced lights pointed directly at the subjects, and it gives all the guy's skin tones a great "white" look hard to describe. Not sure if that's just apart of the reversal stock or not. I'm including a link to the film below as I don't have my laptop with me and my iPhone will not allow me to attach pictures. Please don't crucify me people.
