hey guys,  A relitively simple one,  I would just like to double check with you all in case theres something im missing. I have a shoot coming up where we are going to have a series of babies 'talk' to camera.  Plan is a white cyc setup up with a super soft source bounced above and over camera and then fill from pretty much all sides and a bit from below.  Ill shoot on the alexa mini with cooke glass wide open.   any thoughts beyond the above?  or any experiences people want to share? 

 

thanks!

I'd recommend not shooting wide open; babies are unpredictable and having a deeper stop will keep them in focus.
