hey, im shooting a live performance and im looking for some suggestions as to how to bring up the light level in the room. i really enjoy super soft lighting and the main performer is a female singer/song writer so i feel like super soft should work for the tone of the performance. here is the studio.
i own three 1000w redheads, and a 3 light arri fresnel kit [350w, 350w, 750w]. i want to shoot at around f3.5 preferably at iso400 [native iso of my camera] but 800 would be fine as well
the ceiling is 22ft high so i was thinking about punching all three redheads through an 8x8 frame about 8' up and off to the side of the subject about 30 degrees. I would play the frame as close to the performers as possible.
the studio seems to have a few cans mounted to the ceiling so i could possibly incorporate those. ill be getting into the studio some time in the next week to take a look at it.
im not sure as to what type of diffusion to use to achieve f3.5. i really want to learn to calculate this on paper beforehand but im not quite there yet. i would appreciate any suggestions.
