Magic Hour look all day
Posted 29 May 2005 - 03:12 AM
An ext. day scene for an upcoming shoot calls for the magic hour (or very late afternoon) look for the entire scene. Any suggestions on how to create a low-angle sun, warm light look over an entire day? There will be two subjects in an open field. The scene requires about 35 shots, will take up a minute of screen time, and should look like it has occured over about twenty minutes. I will not have the luxery of lights, but do have the options of 12x12 silks, griffs, gold lames, etc.
Most importantly, I would like ideas on how to control/manipulate midday light to look like late-day light.
I have some it deas, but am interested in your feedback.

Night for day?
Otherwise, you'll have to try and sell it as an overcast evening, and fly in giant silks.
Much use of ND grads to take down horizons. Perhaps tinted ND grads (sunset grad? specific DFN filters?).
