So I am shooting a project in Wyoming. It will be in a variety of environments (mostly forests and mountainous locations). I want to have a similiar "look" (although different to) "The Revenant". I know that mostly natural light was used, and I am in the same boat due to traveling restraints with gear. It will mostly be a guerilla-esque production, although it is narrative. Does anyone have any tips for me in terms of what techniques to use when shooting in snow/wildlife conditions?
I was thinking to mostly shoot early morning with an overcast sky, but wanted to hear your (professional) take on how I should have my set-ups. Thanks for your time.
P.S. - Bounce Boards for lighting? I noticed that "The Revenant" looks pretty amazing for only using natural light. Most of the trailer had a great lighting ratio on the character's faces.
