Shooting while the salon is open, this is for a short film, we are having a rehearsal there tomorrow so i was going to experiment with lighting. Shooting for real in about two weeks.
Going for a high contrast or natural look - low key, or what ever i can manage in a minimalist way because of the salon being open while we shoot and because of budget. I could possibly rent some super speeds and an extra light set up for a quick take. Tomorrow I'm going to measure the rafters and see if I can hang lights from there as another possibility to not be intrusive and to get my coverage.
If you can make out my floor diagram, X marks the spot where i would shoot scenes. And i was hoping for a wheelchair dolly move down the middle hence the arrows etc.
I've shot there before using 16mm Tri-x rated at 180 and I got an F2 or i might have bumped the zoom on my K3 and actually shot at 1.8??, just using the ambient about ten or so feet in during mid day. Windows face north. So at 1600 i'm figuring F11 ambient near the windows and probably wide open further inside.
1. The reptilian part of my brain says to shoot my 2K through a 4x4 and just use as fill or to raise the ambient a little bit...
2. And for the dolly shot past the salon booths for a more high contrast look i was thinking
of just making a slit with the barn doors and shooting across and bouncing off the mirrors? And letting it go dark for part of the move etc.
