I have a commercial shoot coming up where we are shooting outside at a farm at golden hour.

 

Was just on the tech scout and of course the clouds were not playing nice with us so the sun wasn't out.

 

I have attached a pic of our location and a pic of what look I am going for but in the look picture I will have some grads and things to help bring the sky down to keep more detail.

 

Just wondering what approach to lighting some of you DPs and Gaffers would take to this? I have a few ideas but wanted to hear other routes.

 

I have access to tools, shooting on Amira with Lecia Summicron - C Primes.

Appreciate it folks,

Hey Marcus,

 

Any location restrictions (is it notoriously windy/dusty and do you have any limitations on what you can put up there?)

I'm not really an expert but I would probably just use a silver bounce or one or two mirror boards to fill in the silhouette a bit and call it a day.
