I am in need of some lighting advice. I have to emulate a shot for a cinematography assessment, and I've chosen a shot from the first episode of HBO's True Detective.
I am an absolute novice when it comes to lighting, but I'm eager to learn and improve my craft! To me the subject looks softly side-lit and almost backlit, with 3/4 negative fill, but I'm probably way off...
How can I achieve this look? I'm hoping to shoot on an overcast day (otherwise a lot of scrim is in order and I deal with the blue sky!), and in terms of lights, I have 2 x Arri 2k and 1k tungsten fresnels, 2 x Filmgear 300w tungsten fresnels and 3 x kino flo diva lites at my disposal.
Shooting on Blackmagic 2.5k with Samyang primes.
