I'm shooting a piece in a few weeks set in an ice rink with one figure skater. The Director would like focused, but very soft light on a space within the rink (I'm thinking a 20' by 20') with the background almost void of detail.
I found this reference that she liked:
My initial reaction was rig up a wall of 60° angled 750W Lekos with large diffusion, used and loved by Shane Hurlbut for stage-like lighting. I really like the idea of shaping ellipsoidal light.
I know there are probably umpteen ways to do it. What are your thoughts?
With deep appreciation,
