So long story short, I'll be shooting an Edwardian era film this coming March.
I've been studying the era, and what it consisted of in terms of lighting, looks, color, etc.
I was wondering if anyone else has shot a period piece that was similar, and what kind of techniques they used to fit the style of the the era.
From I found out so far, a lot of the photos had overhead chandeliers and a lot of floor, and wall lamps. (candle light based)
From what I can think of maybe is a large soft source from above, and maybe smaller units to back light or edge characters for night
And for day just have large sourced windows to provide the majority of my lighting.
But I would like to hear other people's approach and ways that they tackled it.
