I came across a scene in "12 Years a Slave" photographed by Sean Bobbitt, BSC, and became curious as to how someone else might recreate the lighting in that scene, if they were working with white actor's skin tone, as opposed to black...Yet still create the same photographic look and feeling of being enslaved under the deck of a boat.
Watch the scene below:
If you were to do exactly the same lighting but with white skintones, how would you do it? How would you break up the light? What fixtures would you use? And how strong (film stock rated @ 500 ASA) ?
