Hi, I haven't done too much work with large HMI sources and curious what others thought about this.

 

 

I have a shot of 2 guys on a porch sitting in chairs. its kinda medium wide.... cut off just above their feet or so.

 

We are probably not going to be able to control time of day to shoot with the sun and I would like to create an sunlight effect with HMI. Kinda a late afternoon sun streaming in as a rear 3rd edge on them.

 

 

The photometrics for the M40 look about right to be able to do this to me, but I'm curious in practical application if this will hold up.

As long as you are shooting into the house, and not out over the lawn, you should have plenty of level from an M40. How had you planned to power it?
