Here's a photo of what I will be lighting:
The scene will feature a father reading a story to his little girl, both in bed (the little girl will be lying in bed, while the father will also be in bed, but with his back against the wall). The mother will arrive after the shot begins, sitting in the bed, on the left side of the frame, facing them (so, back against the camera).
Ok, I will be moving the bed from the left wall and place a small bedside table with a lamp to create ambience and also allow the mother to sit on the left side. The idea will be to simulate cozy lamp light. I'll be shooting with an Ursa Mini 4.6k at 800 ISO. I wanted some focus on the mother as well, so we're looking at a relatively deep focus scene here (perhaps T4). I have acess mostly to tungsten Arri fresnels (150 and 500w). How would you guys light this? I want this very smooth and ambient light on the characters, even though, the previous shot is the dad's shadow on a white closet reading the book. And the silhouette is well cut, so a bit of a lighting incoherence, since no soft light would produce a sharp shadow, but I think I can get away with that, for the sake of the look... Any suggestions?
thanks for helping, guys!
