Hello all! How are you?
A friend of mine directs a short next week (Sunday) and his Dp can't finally handle it, i have been called today to help and replace him.
I never dp projects that i don't write / direct and edit so i really do that for my friend, the problem is that i exclusively shoot under natural and practical lights and my friend needs a more "conventional" cinematography.
I know nothing about "three point lighting", i never used a Kino or an HMI, in clear, i'll be out of my confort zone and it's pretty scary..
Do you know an online resource or a book? Something written by one of the the greatest? I need an express course and i have one week only..
Ps: i'm a newbie at using conventional tools but i'm not a newbie at Cinematography, so don't hesitate to be really technical in your advices..
Here are some of my favorites Cinematographers so you can know where my sensitivity stands :
-Conrad L. Hall
-Jeff Cronenweth (for fight club exclusively)
-Emmanuel Lubewzky (during his 35mm film era)
